Thank you for the feedback.  CC to debian-edu@lists.debian.org to let
the entire project know about your proposal.

I have not yet had time to investigate, but it sound like it might
solve our problem.  Do you have time to implement a similar command
line tool to the wpad-extact tool we already have, or is that wat the
existing command line tool already do?
Happy hacking
