I think this would have a serious chance of breaking stuff unless it was only enabled with a new flag or similar. Also, I guess it would probably be limited to Basic authentication.

The wget and curl programs both support different URL protocols, HTTP redirects (if curl --location is enabled), etc. In my mind they operate at a higher level, like urlopen(), and http.client is a more lower-level client. Are there many use cases where you would want proxy support for a HTTP request, but wouldn’t want to use urlopen() or some other high-level library like Requests?
