Well, in June 2004, I suppose HTTP::Proxy will support working in a man
in middle manner, so this kind of thing should be quite easy to do.
(I have yet to understand how to use Net::SSLeay, though.)

In fact, you can already use HTTP::Proxy to see inside a HTTPS connection:
set HTTPS_PROXY to point to your HTTP::Proxy proxy, use env_proxy
with your LWP::UA object. LWP::UA does a GET https://www.example.com/
to the proxy, which will fetch the data with SSL, and return it in a
plain (cleartext) HTTP session.

So that you don't have to change your debugging habits when asking
for https URLs.
