Inadequate HTTP proxy server support in HttpClient.

           Summary: Inadequate HTTP proxy server support in HttpClient.
           Product: Commons
           Version: Nightly Builds
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows NT/2K
            Status: NEW
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: Other
         Component: HttpClient
        AssignedTo: commons-dev@jakarta.apache.org
        ReportedBy: rperrott@netcomuk.co.uk


1. The HttpClient class does not save the StatusLine from the hidden
ConnectMethod object used to connect via an HTTP proxy server, thus any proxy
failures are only picked up as 'anonymous exceptions', this is useless for
gracefull recovery and rapid debugging.

2. The current class structure is too fragile to neatly support HTTP Proxy (and
authenication) chains so it would be a good idea to look at this at the same
time, preferable with support for a Proxy chain redirect when an non/dead HTTP
Proxy server is found.
