Because then anyone using tor can use your proxy and any
crimes/harassment they commit come from your proxy.

have perl use socks to runn connections through tor configure the
proxy to accept connections from all tor exit nodes.  How to do this
is best asked either in a perl list or a list for your proxy server

No, I'm not worried for TOR, I'm worried for you.  If all your traffic
appears to becoming from one proxy it's obvious who you are, and you
have basicly zero anonymity.
