Subject Re: v2.0 and SOCKS?

SOCKS 4 is likely not used a lot anymore, though I can't say for sure no
one uses it. You have to link its libs to your app to SOCKSify them,

SOCKS 5 uses a set of wrappers to dynamically add this capability. It
would be nice to support this, but no one's tested httpd with it yet
