Hi Hans-Peter,

In 3.3 (95b09ccc8a3e) and 3.4 (3c19023c9fec) the change completely removes any variant of http_proxy if REQUEST_METHOD is set.  The only way to have http based proxy in cgi environment by using ProxyHandler method. This is solution introduced for the security fix.

If I backport your patch from issue26804, I imagined that we will be introducing a new feature for other environment variables like NO_PROXY, which folks might be prepared for in the security fix release. That was my concern in not making the other change.  Hope this reasoning helps.
