Comment(by Sebastian):

 I like option three as the cleanest way to go forward, especially because
 option one will be a nightmare to document properly and our options are
 already _really_ confusing to most users.

 What we *could* do on top of option three is add some warnings when you
 define some options, like Log for example, on command line and in the
 torrc file. Then we can help with some surprises, and yet have a clear and
 consistent way in which options from different files/command line interact
