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 .
And here is a short cody-mockup that shows how it could look like in
Sugar  (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.
