Okay, step back a bit.  I am _not_ asking why people use
proxy services.  Going back to the SELinux thread, I figured
you'all would pick up on the fact that I _deny_all_ outgoing
by _default_.

That means there _is_ a proxy server, if not an advanced
filtering layer-7 gateway, that users _must_ go through.

I'm just saying that I don't use transparent proxy
redirection.  In fact, most of the nodes on my network are
setup with_out_ a default gateway.  That removes a lot of
issues.  ;->
