Tor has a "SafeLogging" configuration option that scrubs this kind of
information from the logs and it's turned on by default. I'm wondering
here what is the best approach. Looking for the torrc configuration file
and checking if it's enabled or not, adding a configuration option *in*
torsocks or enabling/disabling this info by default?

Any thoughts?

(FYI: there might be other DBG() call site that prints out possible
sensitive information on the current connection.)
