JEP-0065 supercedes JEP-0046.

- 65 uses the SOCKS5 protocol for handshaking, which means existing libraries 
and code can be reused, while 46 has a custom protocol.
- 65 has the ability to relay over a specialized proxy component.
- 65 is almost council approved, just one vote shy.

There is no sense in having two competing standards that do nearly the same
