 Add internal documentation for a bunch of configuration options.  We should do something to keep this list, the canonical list, the tor.1 list, and the torrc.complete list in sync.

- Ongoing work on eventdns infrastructure: add dns server and ipv6
support.
- Make PIDFile work on Windows (untested).
- Add internal descriptions for a bunch of configuration options:
accessible via controller interface and in comments in saved
options files.
o Security bugfixes:
- Stop sending the HttpProxyAuthenticator string to directory

- Don't let 'newnym' be triggered more often than every n seconds.
o change log_fn() to log() on notice/warn/err logs where we can.
X If we try to publish as a nickname that's already claimed, should
we append a number (or increment the number) and try again? This
way people who read their logs can fix it as before, but people
who don't read their logs will still offer Tor servers.

have to do the ipchains dance.
- Rate limit exit connections to a given destination -- this helps
us play nice with websites when Tor users want to crawl them; it
also introduces DoS opportunities.
