Hmmm ... not sure I understand the problem you're fixing.

I'm guessing this is the crux of your point.
In the source code is a comment headed "Privacy Note", comprising
three paragraphs explaining this behaviour.  Perhaps it would be 
useful if you could address that comment directly.

Also useful would be if you could explain what information
you want is actually being lost in a forward proxy (if indeed
that is your underlying problem)?
