Working with snappy behind a ntlm proxy

My use cases include developing in snapping and then deploying to snappy.

The environment variables http_proxy and https_proxy, appear to work as 
expected in my ntlm world.

I'll now need a way to provision snappy so that the developers don't 
have to worry about the proxy.
