[tor-relays] 4 relays per IP address are allowed from now (Feb 2023) on

You might recall that Tor is restricting the possible amount of Tor
relays per IP address to 2, mainly for Sybil prevention reasons.
Given that Tor on the relay side at least is not multithreaded yet (and
will likely not be for the near and medium future) that's wasting a lot
of useful resources as many servers can easily handle more than 2
relays. Additionally, IPv4 addresses are scarce/expensive.
I have good news for you, though. Thanks to a push by our relay operator
community we raised that limit to 4 with the help of the directory
authorities (by having set `AuthDirMaxServersPerAddr 4` on a majority of
them) and, depending on how that experiment goes, consider raising it
even to 8.
Thus from now one should be able to run 4 relays per IP address. We are
looking very much forward to seeing a bunch of additional relays
entering the network and making it stronger. :)
