Definitely a problem. On my workplace network, all external HTTP access
must go through a proxy, which means that any tool must not only be
proxy capable, but also configured to use that proxy.

The Python example on the Launchpad page would fail that test, since
while Firefox will have proxies configured, Gnome won't unless a user
has configured it, and command line tools are pretty much guaranteed not
to, since almost all of them do things there own way..
