Greetings,

This seems like it should be a FAQ, but I've been unable to find an answer
anywhere.

Is it possible to use LWP::Simple with a proxy that requires authentication? If
so, how and if not what alternatives exist?

I tried setting a set of environment variables (HTTP_PROXY, HTTP_PROXY_PASS, and
HTTP_PROXY_USER) but continue to get a "407 Proxy authentication required"
error.
