(adding Brian properly this time)
I think it makes sense to add it together with something=E2=80=A6though m=
more related to SPICE clients. So adding Christophe for his
Opaque seems to be more an oVirt client than a SPICE client, so I'd tend
to think it would be a better fit as an oVirt project. aSPICE would fit
well together with other SPICE repositories, dunno if these are the same
code base or not (?).

libgovirt is not parsing the proxy information at this point, so answer
would be no. See
