A better approach would be to use Qt classes for network I/O (i.e.
QNetworkRequest and friends) together with QgsNetworkAccessManager
that knows qgis proxy settings - then the plugin does not have to
worry about proxies. Additionally those Qt classes provide a
convenient interface using signals and slots.
