[Mono-osx] CFProxySupport in MonoMac

Actually spoke too soon, I'm no proxy expert but there's probably a problem


returning https here causes "The authentication or decryption has failed"

The failure happens before the ServerCertificateValidationCallback delegate
code is even reached.

After inspecting the traffic with WireShark, using https://proxy:port Mono
never does the initial HTTP CONNECT with the proxy and just throws the https
request at it.

I've modified my version to just always return http:// for the protocol when
http and https, as at the end of the day a proxy is just a host and a port.

Hope this helps someone.
