Proxy Patch for tuxtime

Some of the systems that I run tuxtime on are behind firewalls that
block port 4242. To work around that I've patched tuxtime-0.2.2 so
you can specify a new host:port that isn't block. Using an ssh port
forwarding tunnel is the simplest thing.

The patch lets you set in /etc/tuxtime.conf

proxyserver = localhost
proxyport = 4242

and then from a console setup an ssh tunnel like this:

ssh -f -C -L sleep 36
