Section 5.4 of control-spec.txt:


    If true, Tor will not automatically attach new streams to circuits;
    instead, the controller must attach them with ATTACHSTREAM.  If the
    controller does not attach the streams, their data will never be routed.

Setting that to 1 will prevent Tor from building a circuit in response
to a socks request. (Setting __DisablePredictedCircuits will prevent
Tor from building circuits beforehand in anticipation of socks requests.)

As for overhead, if you want to control circuits, this is how you do it.
Unless you can suggest a better way.
