Finally admitting that 0.3.??? was a euphemism for Tor: unspecified all along.

This is not an actual patch. This ticket would need an actual patch on our codebase, where it adds the example torrc in doc/ and also documents it in our documentation, otherwise it will just get lost and people will wonder why it's there. I'm putting this off needs_review. If someone is interested, please revisit it.

There are already sample torrc files in the tor repository. They are in tor/src/config/torrc*

This appears to be a copy of that file, with minor edits.
I'm not sure how distribution-specific files help, or if they belong in the tor repository.

The relay guide would be another place to consider contributing distribution-specific configs:
