I /really/ want to see a sub-second proxy connection timeout as this is 
needed due to Windows' inappropriate RFC interpretation.  This would be 
r705005 produced by Ruediger, I believe.

If this is not part of 2.2.11 (I'm pretty sure it did not go into 
2.2.10) then I'm going to have to backport this myself into our binaries 
for real soon here and keep doing so with each new 2.2.x.  It would be 
/much/ better to just have this in 2.2.x.
