Thanks. It looks like the basic building blocks are there - but I don't know
enough about how a proxy works to be able to make one (if I can avoid it).
All I really need to do is to be able to hook into the date stream, tagging
on one specific URL which I can then parse to get the data into my python
program. Unfortunately, I can't access the URL directly (cookies, etc.).

Or have i misunderstood twisted.web.proxy? The only docs I found were at
