I added a bunch of test cases, restructured the code a bit, and now switched the implementation to use pycurl instead of jockey's verified_https.py urllib2 handler. I didn't see a way to make this work properly with HTTPS proxies, but with pycurl it works just fine:

$ http_proxy="http://localhost:3128/" https_proxy="https://localhost:3128/" python -c 'import jockey.detection; from jockey.oslib import OSLib; OSLib.inst = OSLib(); print jockey.detection.OpenPrintingDriverDB._check_get_fingerprint("https://linux.avasys.jp/drivers/lsb/epson-inkjet/key/fingerprint")'

Squid log confirms that the request was proxied and reached the right destination:

1299594547.873 1444 127.0.0.1 TCP_MISS/200 4340 CONNECT linux.avasys.jp:443 - DIRECT/202.41.220.57 -

I'll upload this in a bit. I'd appreciate if you could test this again once it's in Natty, to confirm that it also really works in your setup. Thanks!
