and i'll keep waiting for a v2 personal proxy.

most of these ugly shell or perl hacks would be obsolete if we had a v2
personal proxy. in fact, i am still using v1 clients and a v1 personal
proxy. i'm running Remi's optimized v1 clients. they are very reliable
(they are up 11 days now as well as the v1 personal proxy) and they
are as fast as the current 2.004 clients.

i'd like to suggest that the dev. team devotes its resources to the
development of a v2 personal proxy and not mess around with any fancy
commandline options for the various clients.
