Probably because you didn't call it.  Anyhow, I wouldn't suggest doing this,
anyway.  ProxyServer is all of about 10 lines long.  It takes about as much
code to import, subclass, and upcall to it as it would take to implement
yourself.  Generally I wouldn't recommend re-implementing something which
already exists, but there's so little code involved here and ProxyServer isn't
really intended to be subclassed like this.
