Never mind.  The proxy isn't intended for ftp, anyway, according
to the "auto-config" file you give netscape to tell it what to
do about proxying.  I guess I should've figured out that it
didn't make too much sense going through a caching proxy for ftp,
anyway.  Not too many repeat requests for a given file, I don't

Netscape doesn't seem to have any qualms about un-escaped colons
in the URL's, though.  Escapes them internally, maybe?
