It's pretty much all in now. I've got some further cleanups but I don't
have time to get them polished now and I don't want to hold up your
contributions. I can adapt any further cleanups after your proxy

You'll also note that there is now an upload command too. I don't know
how uploads work with proxies.

BTW, do you think it is necessary to put the http proxy in the
~/.cabal/config file? If it's just necessary for windows, perhaps we
should be getting the value from the registry somewhere. It'd be nice if
the HTTP library could do this for us - get the proxy from system's
native way of configuring such things.
