Hi. Some old discussions on "stem" and "vidalia" suggest that Tor may be
controlled via a Unix domain socket. This seems like a good way to
control Tor on Unix; I just need to add a user who will control Tor to
the "tor" group. But I can't find anything like a documentation.
Did you look in to tor's man page?

the relevant torrc option is called:
ControlSocket ;)
Permissions on directory /var/run/tor are too permissive.
Before Tor can create a control socket in "/var/run/tor/control", the directory "/var/run/tor" needs to exist, and to be accessible only by the user account that is running Tor.
Why are not permissions 0770 allowed?
