I tried tsocks and another application which I cannot remember the name at
the moment, and found that they did not work correctly with rtorrent. I'll
try your suggestions before I begin adding SOCKS support directly to
libtorrent/rtorrent. In the meantime, if someone has had any success with an
"external" SOCKS tool with rtorrent, please speak up. Thanks!
