[tor-dev] man page: MyFamily

I wanted to help improve the man page section for MyFamily in the light
of today's MyFamily change .
I sometimes contact relay operators about their MyFamily configuration
and a common request is: "Please send me an example"
So I added an example to the man page (including the new multiline
support in 031)
- replaced "node" with "fingerprint"
(no one is using nicknames anymore, or onionoo does not display
fingerprints?) Are nicknames still supported? (Roger started to remove
remaining bits of the past Named "world" so this might be another place?)
- made clear that you can still have multiple fingerprints in a single
line (if this will be deprecated at some point I can add a deprecation info)
- added info that the fingerprint can be prefixed with $
- changed "This option can be repeated many times, for multiple families"
"This option can be repeated many times, for multiple fingerprints"
(from one relay's view there is only one family)
inline patch below (I can paste it to trac if you like)
< [[MyFamily]] **MyFamily** __node__::
> [[MyFamily]] **MyFamily** __fingerprint__,__fingerprint__,__...__::
< their identity fingerprints. This option can be repeated many
< multiple families. When two servers both declare that they are in the

> This option can be repeated many times, for
> multiple fingerprints, all fingerprints in all MyFamily lines will
> When two servers both declare that they are in the
< When listing a node, it's better to list it by fingerprint than by
< nickname: fingerprints are more reliable.

> is identical to: +
