I was originally looking at this, but there is a big disadvantage:  it's external to the build.
  The nice thing about the littleproxy thing is in your junit tests, you can pop up a proxy
on any port, use it, bring it down, etc… just like any other service we may be using.  
It would work on every developers machine.  

Right now, we have ZERO coverage of the proxy support in CXF, even for the HttpURLConnection
based transport.   With the little proxy thing, I'm hoping to rectify that.    That said,
I don't think it provides all the various possible proxy situations that squid can, but at
this point, some tests are better than none.   :-)
