Whiteboard

Should be application-wide proxy settings in config.ini.

[network]
proxy_server = http://whatever.blah.blah:8020
use_proxy = true

When Stellarium needs to connect to the internet to download something, and if the use_proxy setting is true, and if the proxy server requires authentication (this can be determined by listening for the signal QNetworkAccessManager::proxyAuthenticationRequired ), a dialog should prompt the user for the credentials.

Should use OS specific secure storage for passwords. This is problematic.
