Socks v4 or v5 implementation?

    Someone ever thought about an Socks v4 or v5 implementation in HyperWRT for LinkSys WRT54G.

    It would make working with IRC, ICQ or any other tricky protocols software with builtin socks support very easy and would also provide a proper solution for those softwares.
    (Also think of socksifiers for nearly every application, so that UPNP can go home to mother MS)

    Or is there already an solution out there?
    Please help me, with this... :?:

    (PS: DMZ is not really a good solution, since U loose all security and U got only one IP dmz'ed with WRT54G (without hacking))

    Especially DCC (Irc) and ICQ aren't very nice programs for NAT solutions.

    Pump... or am I the only one seeing an advantage to have an socks server on the router itself.

    could be very useful, but may or may not be feasible. I couldn't say, myself, but I'm sure someone here might know how feasible it is.

    it is a pretty good idea
    for fxp(ftp to ftp transfert) a socks is a life saviour since NAT totally kills fxp(by changing the ftp packet's content... which is mostly annoying)
    up to now i've been using a sock with ssh -D but indeed, using a socks inbuilt would be better
