[wp-hackers] Experimental Proxy Support in WordPress

There was some complaining about the lack of proxy support[1], but a 
patch has been added [2]. If you check the documentation that is in the 
patch, you can find the code needed to enable the proxy support 
(requires modifying wp-config.php).

Here are some things that needs testing.

Current issue with the fsockopen is that nothing appears to be returned 
with no errors and warning as to the cause.

Current issue with streams is that it throws some error.

Current issue with cURL is that there is some obscure bug in it that may 
return some Headers mixed in with the body (no known fix at this time, 
nor probably will there be one if no one else has a problem).

Current issue with HTTP extension transport is that it hasn't been tested.

Well, good luck. It will be easier if you use subversion and apply the 
patch. Also, I'm cross posting to wp-hackers to get those people who 
were interested in WordPress having support for it.
