Subscribing the Ubuntu Release Team, to know whether the fix for this needs a FFe.

IMHO, this is not a new feature; this fix is mainly a workaround for the missing support for proxy in Qt (see https://bugreports.qt-project.org/browse/QTBUG-26295) which affects just Linux (Qt supports proxies in Mac OS X and Windows already), and will be fixed in a future Qt version.
Our fix is actually mostly copied from the fix which has been already accepted in Qt itself.
