Bug#479617: allow overriding *_proxy environment variables

Package: apt
Version: 0.7.12
Severity: wishlist

$ man apt.conf says
   The http_proxy environment variable will override all settings.

Please add a way to override this override, like e.g.,

$ grep proxy /etc/wgetrc
# If you do not want to use proxy at all, set this to off.
#use_proxy = on

In some environments, 99.9% of applications should go over the *_proxys.
You will force one to make wrappers for all apt scripts.
