I think you should realise that people need a proxy for many reasons
including but not limited to lack of dial-in, sneakernet, cost reduction,
centralisation of control convenience, etc. ... I don't think you can
expect us to "accept the fact that part of their cpu-time [15%!] will go to
proxy" when prior PProxy versions were a lot better behaved, more
functional and easier to operate.
If you make it too difficult for people to contribute to d-net then they wont.

PProxy is a tool it should make our lives easier, not harder. PProxy 280 is
the best fit for me as it works, it amalgamates blocks, is unobtrusive and
lets ME easily control my contribution to d-net.
