[osg-users] Proxy auto-config (PAC) support

I have a customer who is trying to use OSG to access data through a PAC
proxy (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Proxy_auto-config). CURL does not
support this directly, and the sense I get from the CURL community is that
they don't plan to.

Does it make sense to add PAC proxy support to the OSG CURL plugin? Yes, you
could deal with PAC at the application level and set the CURL proxy based on
the results ... this is what the CURL folks advocate ... the trade-off
though is that sample apps like osgviewer will not be able to work in a PAC
proxy environment.

Just looking to get some opinions on the matter.
