and transparent proxies

Sent this to fedora-maintainers (which seems more appropriate) but
didn't get any kind of response, so I'm trying again ...

I recently tried to import ipython-0.6.11-2.src.rpm into Extras CVS and
got about 50% done when the script failed due to a 403
error on the upload.cgi script.  I'm guessing that this is due to the
transparent proxy setup here at work.  Clearly, removing source-ip
checking from the upload script is not an option.  I asked the proxy
administrator to not re-route the http requests to, but not everyone in this situation might be able
to do that.

Would it be possible for to listen on https or
8080 or something which is less frequently proxied (and have
Makefile.common default to that port)?

It seems like transparent proxying, while not common, is probably common
enough that more people than me will run into this problem sooner or
