Thanks.  As I am now working behind a corporate firewall of superhuman
strength, I appreciate this patch.  Now, if we could get it to work
with a proxy using NTLM authentication, even I would be happy.

This is a easy thing to miss.  I will put a challenge out there for
someone to come up with a good test of the proxy functionality so that
we don't accidently lose this feature again.
