Update of /home/or/cvsroot/tor/doc
In directory moria.mit.edu:/tmp/cvs-serv21928/doc
Tweak control-spec: add a GETINFO/INFOVALUE type pair to handle non-configuration stuff and to avoid proliferating more GETFOO/FOOVALUE pairs. Remove spurious 0x from signal codes. Simplify address-mapping format. Clarify what an identity looks like.
