Hi Robert,

Looks great. Can you (or somebody) confirm that it does everything it
should do on BSD and OS X? I ask because there's another tool called
dsocks, from Dug Song, that is designed for OS X and friends:

I wrote an item on the volunteer page long ago to make the torify script
smarter, so it calls tsocks or dsocks depending on which is available
and recommended for the system. See item #2 at

Or perhaps torsocks makes dsocks obsolete? :)
