Yeah, but caveat emptor there.  It seems to wrap rather less than the
full Winsock API, so I wouldn't assume that this will actually prevent
your program from going around Tor without actually doing a lot of

Also, its API hooking system is based on the ubiquitous  ZDisasm.c
file written by Z0MBiE, who to the best of my knowledge never actually
put a license on it.  So it might be legally problematic to
redistribute (unless I'm wrong about that, and Z0MBiE *did* explicitly
put it ZDisasm.c under some open-source license or release it under
the public domain.)
