I really don't know anything about this particular topic, neither much about
proxies or java script... but a few thoughts about the possible integration

First up I'd suggest that if possible one should decouple the extra java
script based proxy support from the plugin as we don't want a simple plugin
with modest dependencies becoming burden with optional dependencies, as it'd
mean that the plugin behaves differently in different builds.   Might it be
possible to decouple the Java script/PAC support completely.  Perhaps via
another plugin?  Perhaps via Registry::ReadFileCallback?  Or at the
application level?
