You can already do the latter with SwitchProxy (http://www.roundtwo.com/product/switchproxy). Basically, it's a Firefox extension that saves you the trouble of going into the 'preferences' dialogue everytime you want to switch from one proxy to another (or go from using a proxy to not using one, that is). It works like a charm with tor and a local proxy. It also has a "Anonymizer mode", which cycles through a list of proxies in an attempt to give you some kind of pseudo-anonymity (which I guess is good enough for many people).
