FYI, that currently uses libproxy behind the scenes, although I think there
might be plans to make it use pacrunner instead/as well. libproxy is fine
as a way to get proxy support too.

Using the facilities in GLib is probably better for already-GLib-based
projects, though, since it's implementation-neutral and makes sure to do the
Javascript stuff out-of-process (proxy auto-configuration needs a Javascript
interpreter!), both for performance (one Javascript-engine instance shared
between apps) and stability (you really don't want two incompatible versions
of libmozjs, or the Webkit equivalent, in your process space).
