Tor wants each option to be of the form
  key value
That is, it needs to receive the value part, "notice file tor.log",
all as one element on the argv array.

On most modern OSes, this is easy -- you just put it in quotes, and
your shell takes care of doing the right thing. That might work for
Windows too, I'm not sure.

PidFile has no effect on Windows. We'd be happy to accept a patch that
makes it do something smart. I'm not sure what that should be.
