      Description

      In many corporate environments, IT departments seek to hamper or sabotage user attempts to enjoy data services.
      One of the favorite devices deployed to achieve this effect are proxy servers.
      Especially HTTP traffic is curtailed using this device.
      This poses a challenge to ETL/DI developers that want to peruse data available on the web:
      although kettle does a good job supporting vfs, and allows URLs in other contexts such as a HTTP client step,
      I find it oftten impossible to use these features because I cannot specify a proxy server.

      (The web services step does support it, but that step is only suitable for full-blown enterprisey WDSL style webservices)

      I'd very much like to specify a proxy serrver.
