The UI could access whatever fancy configuration system it wants and
then setenv() the environment variable that apr will retrieve. Or
there could be an apr_set_proxy_info() function to alter the
information that would otherwise be returned by apr_get_proxy_info(),
i.e., provide a "standard" way of configuring the proxy (an
environment variable on Unix) but allow an application to override it.

Hmm, I don't know much about proxy settings, is it possible that a
single application would want different settings for different
connections?
