 As suggested by teor in #25631, utilizing the following options in torrc
 will improve logging for the purpose of integration testing in stem:
 * `ProtocolWarnings 1`
 * `SafeLogging 0`
 * `LogTimeGranularity 1`

 The former (`ProtocolWarnings 1`) should be used in general with a local
 test relay (i.e. during development, independent of integration testing),
 and the log `[warn]`ings surfaced automatically in integration tests,
 which I believe currently isn't the case. The `[warn]`ings should
 potentially be treated as test failures when emitted (with exception of
 tests that directly try to violate the protocol, and check that Tor
 responds as such).

 The latter two will help with debugging when a problem is encountered.
