Sure thing.  There's a proof-of-concept prototype in the perfd branch of
my public torperf repository:

  git clone https://git.torproject.org/karsten/torperf.git
  cd torperf/
  git checkout -b perfd origin/perfd

This prototype sets up a web server and runs periodic web requests using
your SOCKS client code.  See README.perfd for details.

Feedback much appreciated!
