Ronald is the expert on this but, from what I understand, I don't think there is any reason to spend time on trying to further analyze this.  This issue has been around since day one of _scproxy and affects all versions of Python on macOS.  There is nothing we can do to fix it, and, after all these years, it isn't likely that Apple is going to change the underlying framework.  What we could do is: (1) better document the restriction; (2) find another way to access the system's network proxy configuration (not likely), or (3) change how we use the System Configuration framework, i.e. either don't call it at all or don't call it by default (but that seems like overfill for an edge case for which there already is a fairly simple workaround).  Ronald, what do you think?
