Oh, right! What a strange option.

That's not very "forever". Maybe it'll never again run
"/etc/init.d/tor start", but it'll certainly get started.
It also might be a good idea to reimport the bit I dropped about
this being "(not usable on a multi-user system)".

It turns out none of the options involve scheduling any future
restarts. Maybe it needs to go back to something like

I'm not sure about "to allow a secure authentication". I don't
think it's wrong, but dropping the "a" seems more idiomatic.

Perhaps this should be "with Tor until it is manually reconfigured -"

Tor will start by itself on next reboot, so manual configuration will
still be required;
(Or "on its own", beware apostrophe.)

(Or reformat the indents throughout, but this version was easier to
JBR with qualifications in linguistics, experience as a Debian
sysadmin, and probably no clue about this particular package
