It would be very useful to be able to tell guix-daemon to downloadsources and substitutes through a proxy, even when using ftp. Evenmore so than http, as ftp is easily messed up by NAT and "helpful"Application-Level Gateways.
The format of the ftp_proxy environment variable is the same as forhttp_proxy, and indicates that an HTTP proxy be used for FTPtransfers.
