Not so long ago (well last week), I wrote a PHP proxy script which worked in
the form:
and it would request the page and then display it
changing all the links on the page to point to my proxy script...

The whole script took a hour to write, and I eventually got it to do posts
and get, and to send all headers.... So using PHP is totally possible for
what job you want
