  Description     : socket-like interface for tunneling through SOCKS

 This module provides a standard socket-like interface for Python for tunneling
 connections through SOCKS proxies. This is an updated version of SocksiPy.
 Many old bugs fixed, and overall code cleanup. It features:
  * Fully supports Python 2.6 - 3.4
  * SocksiPyHandler, courtesy e000, was also added as an example of how this
    module can be used with urllib2. See example code in sockshandler.py.
  * Bugs in the original SocksiPy were fixed, including two that could lead
    to infinite hanging when communicating with bad proxy servers.
  * urllib3, which powers the requests module, is working on integrating SOCKS
    proxy support based on this branch.
  * SOCKS5, SOCKS4, and HTTP are now aliases for PROXY_TYPE_SOCKS5,
  * Various style and performance improvements; codebase simplified
  * Actively maintained

This is a dependency for running Google cloud tools.
