No, proxy authentication is unfortunately not yet part of the HTTP client 
module which is the reason for the problems. As Access authentication is now 
handled through a callback into the application it should be possible to 
implement it without changinf the HTTP module. What is needed is to add the 
functionality in the MIME parser.
