Re: Subversion http protocol through SOCKS 5 server (with authentication)

To clarify, svn worked fine through socks 5 using dante-client, which
provides the socksify script which does pretty much the same as tsocks.

I would have filed a bug against tsocks, but from what I can see the
last commit on that project was in 2002. Thus, it seems dante-client is
the way to go.
