How do I use a socks server with cygwin?

Just a quick thought about firewalls and ssh'ing through them.. 

We had a firewall that allowed https-connections, and well, you can
use this to connect to a ssh-server, by telling ssh to use a wrapper
script to fire up the connection, get in touch with me and I can dig
it up.. 

Meanwhile, using a socks server, well basically it should be up to the
application, not cygwin to handle this, so if you find a cvs
supporting socks off you go.. :-)


 The eye of the beholder rests on the beauty!
