As the author of setproxy, I am somewhat disappointed by the use of "horrible"
as an adjective. Unsatisfactory, would be more appropriate :) It does at least
let you write build files that use <isreachable> (ant1.7) to check for proxies
being there before trying to connect to them, which is something that laptop
users will appreciate. 

Returning to the system property, yes, this does seem a good idea by default.

But

-we need a way of turning it off, a --noproxy option. 

-I wonder what the effects of running Ant under an IDE will be. If it is only
read at the start of the JVM URL classes, then by the time that it gets to Ant
it is probably too late. does this mean that we shouldnt do it? No. I just dont
want to break the IDE itself by unexpectedly fidding with proxy settings.

Proposal
-we turn this on in ant main
-the --noproxy option will skip this. 
-we document proxy setup in ant properly; that is, how to use ANT_OPTS,  the
--noproxy command and the java1.5 stuff
-ant diagnostics adds proxy configuration diagnostics.
