Imho it's very improbable, that a significant amount of people will be able to do it that way. It's also complicated and error prone (human mistakes).

I am working on an anonymous operating system (TorBOX [1]) and made a modification to torsocks, called uwt [2].

Using uwt breaks down to "sudo ip= port=9053 uwt apt-get update" or "ip= port=9054 uwt gpg". It's also possible to create wrapper scripts, which do that in an automated way. (Documented under [2].) It's only a hack and a clean solution is much desirable.

Feature request:
I don't know how much effort it were or how much time you still like to spend on privoxy... Could you add a feature?

- privoxy may provide multiple (http) listen ports
- each (http) listen port may be forwarded to a different parent proxy ip/port
