There have been a couple different approaches to handling proxies. Honestly,
I'm not really sure what is "best".

I know that an environment variable is not preferred, unless there is a
hugely widespread, typical usage (like EDITOR). We just don't want to use
environment variables, if at all possible.

Second, we need to consider that proxies require (at least) four more pieces
of information:

1) proxy host
2) proxy port (default to 80 or whatever)
3) proxy username
4) proxy password

Somehow, we need to be able to specify any/all of these. Of course, some can
go in the .svnrc file, but they could also be needed on a per-project basis.
