Well, there are implicit things that use HTTP_PROXY. If mailman makes
any http requests itself, or calls anything that does, it might cause
trouble that it is in the environment. I take it that this is *not*
the case?

(The problem is not that cgi scripts explicitly look at HTTP_PROXY,
it is that many things *implicitly* look at it.)
