I know of this possibility and I'm using it myself but there are some more
issues that I have not described because I thought it was not relevant.

The company I work for has more than 150 sites around the world all with their
own local networks. These networks are firewalled so that only a few
machines (ie proxy-servers) have access to those webservers.

I can't make the other companies open up their firewall to any client around
the world. I know that installing a squid mesh or hierarchy would solve a lot
of problems but people higher up the organisational ladder have decided that
Netscape is the way to go. Something I don't necessarily agree with.

This is why I would like to see URL pattern matching to work.
