I don't think tnftp supports anything, libfetch doesn't do. libfetch
currently doesn't support HTTP error 305 (Use proxy). It does support
HTTP_PROXY, HTTP_PROXY_AUTH, FTP_PROXY etc. netrc is supported as well.
I still need to port the index.html parsing code to libfetch, but that
is the only big missing feature.
