This is what purple_util_fetch_url_request_len_with_account() does internally,
purple_ssl_connect() for HTTPS URL's and purple_proxy_connect() for HTTP URL's.
 Looking at the internals of purple_ssl_connect(), you'll see that it too uses
purple_proxy_connect().  I suppose I could stop passing the account to
purple_ssl_connect() to side-step this problem, but then that will break the
users who need HTTPS to be proxied and only have an HTTP proxy specified at the
account level.
