What we do is more or less the same as in
Which doesn't work because HTTPSocket doesn't respect proxy settings for POST.

As I understand it, it's not multipart but url-encoded. I don't know
wheter this is common or not, it's just what we do.

Sorry but I have to real advice how to test it (without setting up a
proxy server).

If you don't read the proxy settings for Squeak that's fine. We can do that to.
