[Spice-devel] [PATCH v2 spice-gtk 0/5] Add simple HTTP CONNECT proxy

The following series allows to connect to a Spice server via a HTTP
proxy, using the CONNECT method. It can be tested with a Squid proxy,
(which allows CONNECT on various ports) by setting the environment
variable SPICE_PROXY=proxy_host:proxy_port (it doesn't support any
other parameters atm, such as username/password)

The implementation is realized using GSocketClient & GProxy. The HTTP
proxy is not part of GLib yet, but a fairly complete implementation
exists in the Wocky project (from Telepathy).

GLib proxy handling is relatively recent, and requires v2.26.
Using GSocketClient & GProxy allows to leverage existing and future
proxy from GLib (currently various socks version supported).

Since v1:
 - reordered patches
 - rebased on current git

Marc-André Lureau (5):
  spice-channel: plug a small memory leak
  spice-channel: remove unnecessary g_socket_close()
  Add wocky HTTP proxy
  Add SpiceProxy object
  session: allow to connect via HTTP CONNECT proxy
