Re: [tor-talk] How to force redirect each application through separate SocksPorts? (preventing identity correlation)

That's incorrect. Privoxy can change the forwarding settings based on tags:

And while polipo currently can't do that, you could simply provide each
client with its own polipo instance and have each instance forward
to a different SocksPort.

BTW, if you don't need wget's webscraping support you could
replace it with curl which has proper socks support.
