305 Use Proxy deprecated?

Hi All

can't find any browser that supports this.

* IE 6 silently fails (shows blank page, does not attempt connection to 
proxy).
* FF 2 silently fails (shows blank page, does not attempt connection to 
proxy).
* Opera displays message "The server tried to redirect Opera to the 
alternative proxy "http://xxxxxxxx". For security reasons this is no 
longer supported."

So looks like the main browsers (haven't tried Safari) have de facto 
deprecated it.

Is it an optional code to handle?  RFC2616 is extremely sparse in its 
description of the status code.
