That is great news.
I guess we'd want a way to set the SOCKS proxy in GnuPG and then
properly set the SOCKS argument in the curl library usage. If that was
done, I guess we'd have SOCKS support on all platforms other than
Windows - which I think is a reasonable start.
Is there anything I should consider before getting started on a patch?
All the best,
