Uh, you mean 'http_proxy' (lowercase), right? Environment variables prefixed
with HTTP_ (uppercase) gets set in CGI environments so you should never use
them otherwise, as using such a program within a CGI script would otherwise
easily become hazaradous.

In the same style, there's usually a 'no_proxy' environment variable as well
that defines a list of hosts that don't need the proxy.

I could go with this approach.
