Comment (by iry):

 Current result from the discussion on @tor-dev:

 * %include /etc/torrc.d means parsing all the files in the directory
 * implement %include /etc/torrc.d/*.extension syntax
 * let Tor log each config file it loads
 * warn on potentially unexpected files
 * document *.conf as the recommend usage
 * document how to manually migrate from * to *.conf
 * recommend /etc/torrc.d/*.conf as "a default extension for packagers"
