I am fiddling around with the package http-enumerator to download web pages. I was used to `simpleHttp` do do that. However, I would like to infuence the proxy settings, because sometimes I am behind a firewall.
You'll need to drop down one layer and use httpLbsRedirect. You can
look at the code of simpleHttp and add your proxy settings there.
Do people think it would be a good idea to expose an extra function
that has the same semantics as simpleHttp but takes a Request instead
of a String? Any ideas on names?
