HttpClient _should_ work with the socks protocol if it is supposed and
properly configured on the JRE level. We _may_ provide better support
for the socks protocol in the next major release of HttpClient. 

As far as I know one does not need any special support on the client
side for reverse proxies. Reverse proxies are meant to be completely
transparent to the HTTP agents.
