Depending on your operating system you might be able to let the
packet filter intercept the connections and redirect them into
Tor or use library preloading with something like torsocks.

I'm somewhat interested in more conveniently using Claws with
Tor (but not "Tor Mail") as well, but haven't been motivated

proxy that forwards them to Tor, but native socks support would
be nice, too.

important to you, you might consider porting it or switching
