meek-client should support SOCKS proxies w/o Firefox

With meek on Android 4.x in Orbot's VPN mode, we need to proxy outbound connections through a loopback proxy in order to flag socket connections to not go through the VPN.

It would be great to have meek supports SOCKS natively w/o needing Firefox.
We currently use SOCKS 5, but can support SOCKS 4 as well, via this java class:
