Moving from bugs to feature requests.
I have a vague plan on how to do this, I should probably
work with shx on it, I think I talked to him a little bit

Basicly I want to write a small set of HTTP functions for
prpls to use. Well we already have one now but it's not
flexable enough for this. I probably need something like
gaim_http_post(), possibly others.

The things these functions would do special is, check if an
http proxy is being used and if so, talk to it directly
instead of using gaim_proxy_connect(). gaim_proxy_connect()
has to be able to handle any tcp data stream, and so has to
use the connect method. But gaim_http_post() knows its
speaking http, and can send commands like post directly to
the proxy.

Of course I only have limited understanding of http proxies,
so something in here might be wrong.
