If you want the functionality, feel free to set the AllowDotExit config option
to 1. Note that this can't be recommended, because it opens you up for
attacks where the exit node can choose who your exit is going to be,
unless you use encrypted protocols when webbrowsing only.

I think the comment may be a lie. It's most likely a torrc produced by vidalia, not tor. (Someone please correct me if I've forgotten some special
case in which tor does rewrite a torrc.)

I think it is more likely that the file was written by Tor, via the SAFECONF
torctl command.
