Description Ray Strode [halfline] 2006-11-27 00:22:18 EST
It was pointed out here:


that it's a bit of a security issue to automatically store the user's proxy
password in an environment variables.

Also, it was pointed out there that the code to do it was doing it wrong anyway.
 We should just drop the code.
