#3725: Implement the wildcard "*" protocol in {Client,Server}TransportPlugin lines

 The spec says:
   If instead of a transport method, the torrc lists "*" for a managed
   proxy, Tor uses that proxy for all transport methods that the plugin
   supports. So "ClientTransportPlugin * exec /usr/libexec/tor/foobar"
   tells Tor that Tor should use the foobar plugin for every method that
   the proxy supports. See the "Managed proxy interface" section below
   for details on how Tor learns which methods a plugin supports.
