at the moment, i see this:

but this says nothing about any of the actual running tor services.

is there a reason to have a "tor.service" that is distinct from the
tor@*.service files?  if not, maybe we could get rid of it entirely?

If there is a reason to have it, how can we avoid having "systemctl
status tor" mask the statuses of the actual running (or failing)
services?

              --dkg
