Hmmm... So, I tested this mess again.  This time, I did
NOT use our stupid SOCKS proxy, but rather the built-in
HTTP proxy foo sort of like this in an environment variable
sort of like this:

	setenv http_proxy http://$user:$password@$proxy_machine:$proxy_port
                894 % socksify cg-pull origin
        loeliger at sockspassword: 
        cg-pull: objects pull failed
                895 % cg-pull origin
        16:24:36 URL: [41/41] -> "refs/heads/origin" [1]
        FINISHED --16:24:48--

And then it just stupidly worked.

Pay no attention to my questions,
