More PSC trickery!!

I updated psc to include SOCKS4 and SOCKS5 support, so you can now do crazy things like web browsing remote networks from within a modem dialup shell or portshell (even multihop), effectively upgrading a simple portshell to a SSH like e2e pty shell with the ability to forward TCP and UDP ports.

This finally merges code into PSC that I started back in early 2000's, when I was in need to have TCP connections via modem dialups that actually did not have ppp to obtain an IP address to browse from.

Would this be referred to as "history-proofing" your software as opposed to future-proofing it? I'm reminded of the days when my method of internet access was slirp from a linux system which I accessed via telnet from a "borrowed" account on a VMS system with a dialup pool. Good times.
