 Eeek.. That would be QUITE a hack.. Hmm.. You'd need prob need to hack
wget so that it produced output like this:
say for squid's site
(^^ See, complete url)..

Then you severly hack a copy of some proxy server (maby squid.. or maby
something easier to hack)... Or maby you write a script that listens on a
port and recieves proxy requests in the form of
and reads the approiate file..

Then you configure squid with your fake proxy set as the only parent..
