newbie question about Scamper and firewall proxy

I have been successfully using the changeset referred to below in order
to get through the firewall at work with the proper authentication.  If
I try to upgrade to 3.4, apparently there is a collision between this
changeset and 5016u27-xTPfixes-hg and I can only get about 31 of the
fixes put on before I permanently lose the firewall

I can't be the only person that has to authenticate to a firewall. 
Maybe this proxy/authentication fix could be incorporated into the
xTPfixes instead of remaining rogue?  Or is there something in the
xTPfixes that addresses this that I am missing?

Or maybe this is addressed in a later fix in the stream for 3.4 and I
am running into a Catch-22 situation with the order that the fixes are

Thanks for any help you can provide.
