Note that we haven't got a single report from a user with a proxy that
behaves like this.

All user reports on our lists (and to the AnkhSVN lists) are against servers
that are setup with a front-end-proxy to the internet.

Normal users wouldn't even see this as a proxy setup. I wouldn't be
surprised if most of these are already upgraded, as that is the most likely
reason why we don't get additional user reports on our lists.
