I had a quick look at the CFHTTPMessage API ... and I can't see what it offers 
for your work (indeed, at first glance it doesn't seem to offer anything that's 
not already available in the ObjC APIs).

There is some support for socks based proxying in gnustep-base already, so 
perhaps using/improving that would be the way to go ... I can't really tell 
without knowing exactly what you want to do.
