alpha users accumulating hashedcontrolpassword lines
In Tor 0.2.0.13-alpha, I added this feature: - Allow multiple HashedControlPassword config lines, to support multiple controller passwords.
But since Vidalia launches Tor by listing a newly generated HashedControlPassword on the command-line, every time you launch Vidalia and change thing and saveconf, it will append that new HashedControlPassword to your torrc.
So my ~/.vidalia/torrc has 8 of them now. I bet there are people who have even more.
It occurs to me that options given on the command line might not need to be saved during a saveconf. But it's far too late to act on that realization.
The best idea I've got is to change HashedControlPassword back so you can only have one, and add a new config option AlternateHashedControlPassword which lets you set multiple and acts like the current one.
Then we should clear out the extra lines in the current torrcs, and that new feature is still around in case somebody wants to use it.
Anybody have a better answer?
