Hi Marco,

I've pushed this to a new branch 'iphone' in the torsocks git repo so we 
can work on it together.

If you keep your branch on a repo in git hub I should be able to pull from 
it and keep it in line with any changes I make.

Haven't looked at the patch yet, but it certainly applied cleanly!
