transconnect: Access to the internet through a HTTP proxy1

Package available in: [trunk] [8.0] [7.0] [6.0] [2.1]

The concept of Transconnect originated during a chat session with a friend. We knew that HTTP proxies support CONNECT feature to allow for https connections to remote hosts. There are programs which allow you to tunnel through a proxy, but we thought it would be wonderful if the user did not have to setup a tunnel for each host:port he wants to connect to.
