I hacked together support for SOCKS proxies using some code I found ( It works for me, but I haven't tested it any more than that (yet).

How do you feel about putting this back into master? There's a few problems right now, mainly that the socks code is in separate files (and they're not tiny, ~400 lines), so it breaks the nice, clean "download this script and run it" experience.

Let me know what you think. Cheers!
