Chris, please trim other people's .sigs - otherwise those of us who respond 
to you will frequently actually lose your comments.  Smart mail programs 
trim at the first .sig separator...

He really doesn't.  Synaptic (apt actually) has its own proxy settings 
(which is reasonable, because you might use an apt proxy like apt-cacher-
ng), but you might want it to use the standard Network proxy.  It would be 
convenient to have it have an option to use the default proxy.
