As Jochen Erwied pointed out, a buffer size of 10,000 should see you
through the day and crontabs will refresh you.

If you need more than 10,000 keys in a day, then please join me in begging
the authors to remove that limit.

A crontab entry like the following will refresh your proxy.

	05 23 * * * kill -HUP `cat /wherever/proxy.pid`

Note: the HUP doesn't always fill your buffers completely.  Sometimes the
upstream proxy will close the connection early, leaving you dry.  Set
another cronjob to HUP your proxy a few minutes later; you'll double your
chances of being "filled".

In my experience, version 279 was the last usable Linux pproxy.  280 didn't
resolve hostnames properly and 281 went insane after signalling.
