In deed, the build would be faster, but speed is not my intention.

This issue raised to me as I tried to build an open source project, which uses
link options to link against some external javadoc sites, like J2SE and JUnit.
The build failed, because I am behind the firewall, and I have to use a proxy.

Since I wont build the software not very often, and I don't like to modify the
build script, and I don't like to download each external javadoc site to my
location, I think it makes sense to enable proxy settings for the javadoc task.

The patch is not a big thing, and gives in general more flexibility to
developers. Therefore, I would say proxy is a useful feature for the javadoc task.
