Does the current version of torsocks support Optimistic Data?  That
saves a round trip through the Tor network, and makes things snappier.
Tor clients, servers, and recently the Tor Browser now support it.

Regardless, if you're rewriting torsocks, you might ensure the new
version has such support.  (Ticket #3711 is about this; there appears to
be an unmerged branch for it.)
