The helper should be able to use an upsteam proxy, so that it can be used to implement TOR_PT_PROXY as in #8402/proposal 232.

Commit cf81b598 (the removed part) shows how to create a per-request proxy setting.

I have a branch implementing #8402/proposal 232 in meek-client.

When run with the browser extension helper (--helper option), all the proxy types are supported: http, socks5, and socks4a. When run without the helper, only http is supported.

Here's a cumulative diff of all changes as of the posting of this comment:

The code in the Firefox browser extension is pretty simple. We just add a new proxy key to the JSON blob passed to the extension, and set up the right kind of nsIProxyInfo.

In meek-client, we add the new JSON proxy element when using the helper:

See also #12125 for the migration of the TOR_PT_PROXY code to goptlib. It would move the code in proxy.go and proxy_test.go.
