---------------------------------+------------------------------
 Now that I have a native ''TorService'' working on Android, I'm working on
 creating an Android-native test suite for it.  For some reason, it fails
 to start there, but it fails quite early, so there is no way to get logs
 out.  `--Log debug android` is enabled after this issue.

 I've gotten earlier log output to logcat by executing `add_android_log()`
 at the beginning of `options_act_reversible()`.  Ideally, there would be a
 way to have this built in.  On Android, there is no way to see ''stderr''
 or ''stdout'' from C code executed via JNI.  Only from Java code.  Yes,
 this is terrible design, but that's how it seems to be.

 Here's one potential solution for redirecting stdout/stderr:

 streams-for-logging-in-android-apps/  Just ignore the part about Android
 being "basically a UNIX system" because Android is really not UNIX, its a
 lot more different from UNIX than Windows.  Like Windows, it has some
 familiar UNIXish things.
