The hypothetical Corridor package should have apt-transport-tor as a dependency to make sure the system can update when its enabled. Also tb-updater as a dependency so a user can still browse the internet.

The shared-folder-help package does similar functions to what would be needed to create a shared folder on the Host.

Can sdwdate/timesync and tbb-downloader work with system Tor on the Host without any changes?

Can sdwdate/timesync and tbb-downloader work with system Tor on the Host without any changes?

It should, but there is no one maintaining (testing, documenting, user
support) this use case.
