I've investigated this a bit. Basically we have to decide whether to use
TSVN's solution, which has no auto-proxy support, or use IE's settings,
which isn't guaranteed to work on Win9x. Personally I don't care if this
feature doesn't work on those systems, as long as current proxy
configuration can be used as a fallback.

IIRC we already have a patch for this. It's probably out of date, and
would need a bit of work to make it useable.

You mean 1327.

I think this one will be the harderst, because you'll first have to come
up with a useful design _and_ convince everybody else that it's useful. :)

I'm pretty sure you'll have more than enough on your plate with the
three issues you mention above. i'll try to find some time to review
patches, so go ahead.

Before you start working, I strongly suggest you read the HACKING file
which describes our development process. Discuss your design on the dev
list before coding, because we won't accept changes unless we've agreed
to the design first. And be aware that patches -- especially from new
contributors -- usually go through several review cycles before being
committed, so don't be discouaged if the patches aren't accepted
immediately.

Good luck. :)
