Sometimes the 'raw' application is behind one of those proxies that
curls handles
quite nicely. One case is a proxy with a CONNECT, many client applications
support this, since it is simple, but then there are the proxy
authentications etc.
Why not having a little spin off of curl just for the proxy parts.
