Comment (by cypherpunks):

 I fail to see how this is a 'defect'.

 You are explicitly telling tor to add the same value to the same option
 (the '+' prefix).

 Even if you change this into an 'enhancement', I see little appeal in this
 de-duplication mechanic: it would have to be special-cased for different
 options. It's easy to imagine options where several identical values make
 perfect sense.

 > Do you mean symlinks in your last statement? Or something else?
 Unix has any number of ways in which 2 names can actually refer to the
 same object.

 This is 'notabug' for me.
