If this SOCKS5 client/server code works for us then we can check both
options, but in principle, as you say, a jhbuild moduleset for the
buildbot would make this easy to handle.

Yes, good point. Googling a little bit it looks like the person that
submitted that ticket is Daniel Henninger <jadestorm nc rr com>. I will
try to contact him.

I think SOCKSv5 client/server is the best option if it works fine for
us, but I'll give you the final word on this, for you are the one
actually testing them :)
