The attached patch partially implements your idea. I changed the boolean 
property to a QString which can be converted into a list later on as needed.  
It also used 'ProxiedBy' since it is more descriptive. However, for now I 
still only check for the presence of this entry in findProtocol. I think this 
should allow us to do whatever we want down the road.

Also I want to undeprecated three of the functions marked deprecated. On top 
of being convenient, there are scenarios where one has only the protocol at 
hand and not an entire URL to use with these functions. Anyways, this part of 
the patch can be removed  from the rest if you there are any concerns.

Any comments, opinions ?
