This is one of the features the new HTTP client is intended to make 
easier to implement.  The very short twisted.web.client.Agent is 
responsible for all the things which differ when connecting to a proxy 
instead of doing the usual thing.  At some point, twisted.web.client 
should offer something like Agent which provides the proxy 
functionality.  Do you want to take a stab at implementing it?
