http_proxy and https_proxy

I was struggling a few hours to get my http proxy to work with git,
which uses libcurl. My mistake was that I had set only the http_proxy
env variable, but I was trying to clone an https:// url.

I think this is an easy mistake, and in my experience an http proxy
server is also an https proxy server. Would you accept a patch to make
curl fall back to http_proxy if neither https_proxy nor all_proxy are
set? Or do you think this should be handled by git? Or not at all?
