In #20597, we hard-coded a multiplier of 2 (exponent 3) in test networks, and a multiplier of 3 (exponent 4) by default. These should probably be configurable using a torrc option.

This task should be performed after we modify the exponential backoff distributions in #20604 and #20605.

Follow-up to #20499, #20597, and #20534.

batch modify: I think these are "enhancement", though I could be wrong about some.

I don't think we want to make this configurable: it's unlikely to be useful, and it's one more torrc option. We should do #20605 instead.
