Regarding proxies, I really like the new regex capabilities in the proxy


linked from


If you link against the GNU regex library, for example, then you can set up
proxy access so that a certain types of addresses go through one proxy and
another set of addresses go through another proxy or arbitrary other policies.

It would be nice if we could have the same for the rules mappings - they
are pretty dumb right now:


Both proxies and rule files are described as part of the User's Guide at


Any takers?
