Here's the second part of the new API. Its an HTTP proxy. Yep.

Configure it like such:

_name = {couch_httpd_proxy, handle_proxy_req, <<"http://proxied-domain.tld/">>}

It'll try and be as transparent as possible.

I haven't got any tests for this other than just poking at it with
cURL because I can't think of a decent way to implement the tests. If
anyone has a good idea on that, send me a line.

I'm gonna watch a bit more football and then put together a blog post
that explains the current state of things, the new bits, and then
shows the new stuff off with something that I think people might find
