When will you get to Proxy Support?

I really like the looks of this client, but one of the major downfalls of the Microsoft FTP client is that it doesn't support secure communication (FTPS) over a proxy.  I was hoping this would solve my problem, but then I noticed in your TODO list the implementation of proxy support?  I don't know enough about this personally, but if I am reading things right in order to go across a proxy it has to do an HTTP CONNECT?

At any rate, any idea when this feature will be implemented?

what's your proxy environment?

I just found out today that we also have an FTP proxy so that I won't have to do the HTTP CONNECT through our HTTP proxy anymore.  I haven't tried the Systsem.Net.FTPWebRequest on the FTP Proxy yet, but I assume it will probably have the same issue as it seems any attempt at SSL and Proxy results in the dreaded "SSL cannot be enabled when using a proxy".  So, I guess I would say I have a firewall and an FTP Proxy on my side.  I don't know if that is what you were asking.
