Especially if I want to use a proxy for piuparts (in master-slve setup)
exclusively (there is just no need for anything else to use that local
mirror), so I don't want to set http_proxy in the environment.

Especially if -master, -slave, -report, *and* piuparts use the same proxy?

I'm already running in enough race conditions during distupgrade tests
if the mirror is updated after the reference upgrade path is finished
and the reference state has been recorded.


Note to self:
piupartslib/__init__.py open_packages_url()
