#31790 new enhancement

Description

When we developed the onion service circuit setup obfuscation, it was helpful to instrument Tor with log messages that told us when padding and non-padding cells were sent.

This same kind of instrumentation would be useful for a trace simulator, but we should do it at the circuit padding cell event callback layer, so that it can be used separately from Tor.

For reference, the analyzer we used is at https://github.com/asn-d6/padanalyzer

Eh fprinfts might be better because our unit tests suppress logs.
