proxy.cgi is exceedingly trivial. It has three parts:
* Take the URL from the request.
* check that the URL has an allowable domain name.
* Send a request to that URL and return the contents.
It can be done in a tiny number of lines of code.
There is no reason to not just write what you need when you need it.
