The reason why this is not done is because Java is not C, thus not using
environment variables.

There are several ways to solve this:

* Introduce a custom route planner which will read the vars. HttpClient
does not have a proxy selector abstraction
* Set the JVMs default proxy selector to your custom implemenation and
HttpClient will pick it up automatically.

All of this is Maven Wagon related
