Just to be clear, this code is for *bytestream* SOCKS5 proxy (used by
file transfers and tubes), not to connect to your XMPP server through a
SOCKS5 proxy.

Main reason is because http://xmpp.org/extensions/xep-0065.html doesn't
mention proxy authentication and I have no idea how we are suppose to
manage that (is that even possible in that context?).
Furthermore, I don't know any proxy requiring authentification.
