The v2 clients are designed with this setup in mind. The client will remove
its block from buff-in and wait/retry if the buff file is busy.

Perhaps I didn't get you. If you have proxy, you don't need client
buffering. Just set all clients to communicate directly with the proxy, and
number of blocks to buffer to 0. This will save you some overhead (it's
still OK to share the exe/ini, of course). I assume that the proxy has 24/7
access to the internet.
