Thanks for the feedback. It seems like on Linux we would be good
with the environment variable that is already supported. I will look
into firefox as well as this would be the most consistent path for
support on linux for the general user like we would be targeting.

If we do the javascript .pac parsing we will do the WPAD bit as that
seems pretty straightforward. My feeling today is that in general
use pc's, everyone is using a .pac file and not a .ini or anything
else. Could be wrong of course.
