there is a patch in the gnome-control-center package about adding a 'use
the system proxy configuration' to the network capplet. It is too
opensuse-specific, and that's why I've never suggested its inclusion
(not before it was changed to work for all distros). So, you might want
to use that as a starting point. Not sure if we want to be able to allow
users to set the system proxy configuration, but it makes sense to have
the capplet use the system wide settings.

If you want the patch, just let me know.
