Yes, with some limitations. OnionCat (currently) does not route packets.
You can not forward packets to arbitrary destinations to onioncat, only those 
with destinations which are associated a hidden service. It is a "hidden 
service connector" and not an "anonymizing network layer" (currently).

That means that people running TOR and OnionCat can share data with 
torrent/donkey/... together, anonymously, on top of OnionCat but you can not 
just mix it with some "legacy" Internet-Users.

Not desired by who?
