On second thought there is an advantage to discouraging the use of the
check. If something went wrong with the socks port setting using the
check would leak the intention to use tor by connecting to
check.torproject.org. Not a big deal, unless the socks port isn't set
or becomes unset, and a bridge is being used by tor.

So caution is probably a better idea and have a proxy check first like
about:tor in Tor Browser.
