Ticket #220 (new enhancement)
Support for HTTP proxy connections

Currently, it seems there is no (apparent?) HTTP proxy support in SAPO MSG.
Use Mac OS X API to obtain current HTTP proxy settings (don't use proxy for local servers?).
Sometimes, it is possible to just use HTTP Connect and connect to server's standard host/port, but most often, ports other than 80 and 443 are not allowed*.
In case the service ("Jabber server" deployment) doesn't have correct TXT records, user should be able to configure HTTP Polling/XBOSH URLs by hand.
*Google Talk and Jabbim also listen on port 443 for this case (only on some hostnames), but since putting non-standard ports to DNS SRV records is discouraged, the only way to automagically connect behind HTTP proxy is to use polling/XBOSH. Also, SAPO MSG doesn't provide input field to enter port number in connection configuration.
