Hi,
In the last three weeks I was working to implement patch that will enable https 
connection over proxy. I contacted Olga Antropova and she sent me her 
implementation based on an old code base of the libwww. I've integrated into 
5.3.2 code base and did some testing by using wwwssl example by adding 
HTProxy_add("http", "http://proxy:8888");
and on some application level code.
As well I've send a path to <tudor.hulubei@ecora.com> to do independent test of 
the patch. All the tests were secuessfull.
Here is Olga comments on how she implemented this feature:

Find attached the diff file for https over proxy.

Regards, Srdjan

Well, good news!  It does work, indeed, after I took the "s" out from
"https" in HTProxy_add.  Thanks!  Let me know if there is something
else that you want me to test.

Hi,

I think *CachingState is not relevant and should not be merged.

I am impressed with the fact that you are almost finished. Please be careful
to merge only the pieces that make sense.
And please be sure to test the resulting patch intensively before sending it
to the library. (We do not want to break it :-)

Also I am sure that I have missed some more files.

Olga.
