This is a new SOCKS4 + SOCKS5 proxy, specifically written to be used in the curl test suite.

It reads instructions from a file (set from tests using the <servercmd> tag) at the time of each new connection and can thus be instructed to behave exactly the way we want and in ways not previously supported by the existing socks test server. This includes tests with socks5 + auth.

This also makes the SOCKS tests possible to run without the use of a local OpenSSH installation.

Codacy complains on things but as this code is only and strictly only used in a test server I'll ignore them.
