“Pluggable transport will not be launched” notice makes it hard to read users' logs

Description

Now that pluggable transports are integrated by defaults in the Tor Browser, users' logs contain many times the pluggable transport will not be launched notice:

Pluggable transport proxy (obfs2,obfs3 exec obfsproxy managed) does not provide any needed transports and will not be launched

When no pluggable transports are used, the notice appears 15 times before Tor bootstrap phase begins. Making the log harder to understand than it should.

Maybe the notice ought to be reversed? “Will start pluggable transport X as required”?
