To work properly, GLib Proxy support needs a configuration plug-in
provided by glib-networking. This module can be found here [1] (Dan
Winship just released it). Having this module installed will let GLib
retrieve configuration from your system using libproxy. GLib alone
provide transparent SOCKS5/4a/4 support for GTalk.

Note that HTTP support is still under review, you may track this bug [2]
in order to stay informed. Telepathy Gabble is already set-up to
fallback on port 443 and try HTTPS settings when normal addresses fails.
