Socks proxy is not supported with System.Net.HttpWebRequest.

I would like to call a web service and use the WebClient class to download a file from the Internet from behind the Socks proxy. Is there a way to tell WebRequest/WebClient to use a socks proxy? Using the standard WebRequest.proxy object does not appear to work with a socks proxy.
