The absolute simplest way for us would be to stop using
CURLOPT_PROXYUSERNAME/PASSWORD to set it ahead of time, and instead
provide a callback that curl would call on a 407. That callback would
just need the URL of the proxy, and would return the username/password
(or even just set them on the curl object via
CURLOPT_PROXYUSERNAME/PASSWORD).

For that matter, it would simplify our code to do the same for regular http auth, too. And though we usually know our URL in that case, we might not if we got a 302 with FOLLOWLOCATION set.

Thanks a lot. That is in fact almost exactly the solution we're discussing right now.
