    Fetch manual information when needed
    By default the config panel only show the most important torrc options,
    so why fetch data about everything? The full manual has more information
    than we need, not to mention commandline argument descriptions and the
    Fetching information we need on demand from a sqlite database instead.
    Honestly, the results of this are smaller than I hoped. A 2 MB drop in
    memory (40.1 MB to 38.0 MB, 5%) and a drop in startup time from 1.4s to
    1.2s (14%).
    Not much, but oh well. Bit simpler too since we no longer attempt to read
    the user's local man page.
