Description
JavaWS currently won't automagically detect proxy settings if a proxy
config script is being used by the browser.  Since many companies use autoconfig
scripts, we should support them in JavaWS.

EVALUATION

We now check for the presence of a proxy autoconfiguration script, and if
one exists, we read it.  We then grab the first proxy that the file mentions
and attempt to use it.  There could be a better implementation for this, but it would involve actually executing the script, which would require a bundled JavaScript interpreter.

Re-opened, just found a bug in this.

We were indexing a string incorrectly, fixed.
