It seems I'm not the only one that should search the archive a bit better
before posting ;-).

This was sort of halted because I tried to get some more information from
the person that did a lot of work on this almost a year ago. See the link

Now I have almost no spare time, so I'm happy you're taking over the work.


They look good. When it comes to the user-password settings, I was
thinking about a tree-view for this. It allows for more information. Not

When it comes to GConf-keys, this is a good pointer:

It allows for adding more proxy types later on. The tree-view also allows
for this without making the dialog excessively big.
