The reason "non-browser agents" don't support it - I claim - is that there's 
just no significant number of users who need it.

I'm the main author of curl, during its 14 years of existance not a single 
user has asked for WPAD support... PAC however, people has asked for, but 
that's a javascript mess not easily supported by a mere "non-browser agent".

I would claim we in the HTTP world haven't found the optimal solution for this 
yet. Unfortunately.
