Comment (by iry):

 > implement %include /etc/torrc.d/*.extension syntax

 I have been thinking about this for a while. I still find supporting a
 very flexible extension name may cause incompatibility between different
 distros and confusion to users and developers.

 How do you like the idea to add another flag named something like
 `StrictParsing` which will let Tor only parse .config files when it is set
 to 1?
