#238 closed defect (Won't fix)

Fix for "HUP clears default log target" is ugly

Description

Fixing the problem where "setconf log" always appended the default log line
broke tor so that a HUP now removes the default log target if none
is specified in torrc.

There's a short-term and a long-term fix. The short-term thing is to have options_validate know whether
it was called from HUP or setconf and act accordingly. The long-term thing is to have working defaults
for LINELIST options. That's harder, and not for an 0.1.1.11 timeframe.

I have implemented the short-term fix, and it will be in 0.1.1.11.

I'm going to defer the long-term fix until 0.1.2.x.

We decided to defer a very-long-term fix until we need to mess with the code again for some other reason.

We're deferring this so long that I'm going to close this with a "won't fix",
unless anybody objects.
