At least here at the Westford office we have a separate area (network) for external people, so if we had a http proxy that could be given by the dhcp server for that separate network. What we really need to solve is better error fallbacks in the web browser (Epiphany). Instead of popping up a dialog, it should do what IE does and display an error page. The error page would have links to the proxy configuration, etc (I think IE does this too). In the proxy configuration dialog, there could be a checkbox for "Use this proxy for this network session" or something like that. NetworkManager would then know to reset the proxy GConf key after the network changes.
