Do you mean SOCKS? It's not presently included, but if you can be specific about your use case, submit an issue.

Oh, I don't believe that will work, as most BitTorrent traffic is over TCP/UDP

Ah, Okay.
Yeah, I'm rather new to torrenting.

I think if you use a lower level VPN, one that works at the IP level, it will work transparently. There are higher level ones, like SOCKS, that I think will require code changes to support.
Look for a VPN that doesn't just do http proxying
