No option for http_proxy #124

We require an outbound proxy on our servers and have had to fork and temp. patch to facilitate.

Am I correct in assuming there's no option here for a proxy? If so, we'll test our patch some more and send a pull req.

-- EDIT --

Actually our fix didn't work. Initially, we inserted:

RestClient.proxy = ""

Into lib/stripe.rb to test. On dev. this worked but on Production we found it overrides all outbound requests, which we can't do.

I need this..

by the way.. with your patch.. you just set RestClient.proxy = nil again after the request has completed. I think this is thread safe

Sorry for the delay in response on this one! Thanks for reporting.

As described in #219, I think it would be nice to upgrade some of the gem's HTTP infrastructure. I'll try to consider the requirement here as we patch that.

Created umbrella issue #313 and am closing this in favor of that.
