What is this proxy for? I assume this is when fetching http resources  
via the Python network library? In that case, it would be Python which  
should “take the global proxy setting”.

That said, some shell commands (like curl) support reading the proxy  
settings from the environment. I did write a shell command (placed in  
Support/bin) to dump the OS proxy settings with the intention of  
bridging the global preferences UI and shell environment, but it seems  
proxy stuff can be quite complex, so I never got anywhere with it (and  
not using a proxy server myself).
