To be more precise, it's already there (with node), you just have to 

It supports websockets, socks and websockets over socks, bridge function 
and onion proxy, so people can use the bridges (Peersm project) with the 
Tor browser.

As people might notice, node-Tor is not open source for now, but there 
is a specific licence that allows to do what I wrote above, people are 
harassing me about this, it will be open source once reasonably funded.
