set_proxy shouldn't be needed any more since we use urlmon for all 
connections. I didn't remove it immediately because it was relatively 
easy to restore the old behaviour for some time, but other pieces of the 
old code are already killed now and it's about the last piece left from 
before-urlmon times. Feel free to kill it.
