Erm... what that command line says is that you want to connect to, port 3128, and get the document called
"/".  That is what the docs say, that is what a URL

Maybe that is what _YOU_ mean.  Just because you invent your own
interpretation of what a URL is and how you can create a definition saying
that a particular form of a URL is really saying "use a proxy server to
get this" doesn't mean that ab should be hacked to follow that...

If you want proxy support in ab, you need to add proxy support to ab.  Not
make a little hack so that URLs of a particular form are taken to mean
something special.
