Description

Anyt outputs that tools depend on Tor providing, I want us to either document fully, or give the tools a better way to get.

One such output is the string produced by "tor --version". The fact that it is "Tor version [version].\n" is undocumented at present.

Thanks Nick! Looks good to me.

It might be worth noting that there maybe be additional content before and/or after that line (ie, the only assurance we're giving is that a solitary line of that format will be present somewhere - not where it's located). That said, happy if we leave that out too - clearly something only a spec nitpicker like me would care about. ;)
