This package does seem to be better in many ways than the older code,
but it does NOT support proxy authentication, which is a subject near
and dear to my heart.

I was not able to use the old harvesting tool BFAV(2) because of this.
 See Mantis Squeak items #912 and #1169.  I'm sure that there was a
similar reported issue for BFAV, but I didn't find it just now.
