is there reason to use torsocks over git's builtin socks5 proxy?

wouldn't it be better if you just register as http.proxy and https.proxy variable by git config?

Not sure what revision of git your distro ships with but using torsocks should be considered depreciated hack for applications with builtin socks5 proxy support.
