The "--enable-ffipoll" option causes Racket to block before FFI calls
until the embedding program explicitly completes those calls. This is
used, for instance, in the Android port to ensure that OpenGL calls
originate from the appropriate thread even when Racket is executing in
a different thread.

HTTP libraries, including raco pkg, support proxying via HTTP CONNECT.
