Only if I juggle them myself. I suppose that's reasonable, but I
have this pipe dream of being able to set an environment variable
called "SITE" at login time (based off of my DHCP info), and then
having all of my applications DTRT.

As it is, I have to change umpteen proxy-configuration files,
one for each network-aware application, except for those that
use getenv("http_proxy"), which we all know is insufficient
for complex proxying scenarios.

I suppose I could change all of them automatically when SITE
changes, but wouldn't it be neat if I didn't have to do that?
