Having said that, I've worked on a libcurl application that does its own
auto-configuring proxy support. It's designed for a closed system where
we have control over the format of the auto-configure file. So, rather
type application/x-internet-signup which is a Windows-style .ini format
that's simple to parse. The application uses the WPAD (Web Proxy
Auto-discovery) heuristics to find and download that file.
