Summary: HTTPS through proxy via CONNECT

Details: libwww still does not support HTTPS through a proxy server via the
"CONNECT" method.

libwww needs to send a "CONNECT <site>" command to the proxy server, wait
for a "200 OK" response, do SSL negotiation on the connection, and then
send an encrypted "GET <page>" command.

Patches to support this were submitted to the mailing list.
