We already discussed that idea here but the problem we found is that checking the http_proxy env var won't fix the problem if you don't have it set up in your system, even when you have the desktop proxy settings set in gsettings.

Besides, that will work fine as long as you are ok with setting up an http(s) proxy, but we would need to add support for more variables if we wanted to support other things, such as autoconfig URLs (e.g. auto_proxy env var).

In any case, after realizing that the original approach has not been very well received, perhaps I should give this idea a try and see how it works.
