Unfortunately this user/pass/port is not enough for some proxies (where you login or have auto config/discovery or something like that). I don’t have a proxy myself, and I have no experience with them, so this project to update the bundles to support proxies, quickly stranded.
I have been working with different proxies (squid, cacheflow, ms proxy) for quite a while, and I always only needed hostname:port to connect to them. I guess having user:pass@host:port in the bundles solves the proxy madness in around 80% of the cases - might be worth continuing on this track.
I added the following page to the wiki: http://macromates.com/wiki/ ToDo/Proxy
It seems that curl (and presumably other shell commands) understand the http_proxy environment variable (found out from here ).
I have made room for a list of commands that does not work with proxies (when this variable is set). So proxy users, please add to the list if there are commands you find not working.
