  Used to access web-based Mercurial repositories through a HTTP
    Host name and (optional) port of the proxy server, for example
    Optional.  Comma-separated list of host names that should bypass
    the proxy.
    Optional.  Password to authenticate with at the proxy server.
    Optional.  User name to authenticate with at the proxy server.
