I'm also very interested in this. I tried several approaches to have
emacs network connexion use a SOCKS proxy, and both failed.

What I tried:

1. From within emacs

#+begin_src emacs-lisp
 (setq socks-override-functions 1)
 (setq socks-noproxy '("localhost"))
 (require 'socks)


Trying to open a server using erc-tls then failed, because of an extra
argument ":tls" in the open-network function call.

2. From outside emacs

I started emacs with torsocks. Unfortunately launching gnus failed
because I was not able to decrypt authinfo.gpg.

I would prefer a solution from inside emacs (solution 1) but I don't
know if it's possible.
