Hi Jeremy

Why do you want this and why do you think this is a good idea? What
are you trying to solve? The socks5 which Tor open is not a simple
socks5 protocol implementation, it has some customizations and
enhancements used by Tor Browser to isolate streams, etc.

As TvdW suggests, you if you use a TCP proxy that will just redirect
the requests, there should be no penalty of performance or features
for the Tor socks5. But I am not sure why you want to do this.
