I still think merging the proxy option inside the network section of the 
Control Panel makes more sense than having a separate section. Here is 
how the network section looks in GNOME3 [1][2][3].

And here is a short cody-mockup that shows how it could look like in 
Sugar [4][5] (I am running the XO settings).

If we re-arrange the text of the wireless sub-section and collaboration 
sub-section a bit I think we can even get away with scrolling there.
