I think the point is that we don't want to be grabbing settings like this from 
other configuration locations. Ideally, there'd be a way to provide a list of 
"don't bypass the proxy for these names", which a caller could then read from 
the IE configuration if they want.

The other part of the problem is it seems that nobody on this thread (apart 
from perhaps you) understands exactly what's going on here :) You may want to 
post to python-dev and see if anyone who understands the intricacies of how 
gethostbyaddr() should/does work is willing to chime in.
