summary: Present HTTP proxy interface to dynamic port forwarding
class: wish: This is a request for an enhancement.
difficulty: tricky: Needs many tuits.
priority: low: We aren't sure whether to fix this or not.

Dynamic port forwarding presents a SOCKS proxy interface. It might be nice to have the option of presenting an HTTP proxy interface instead, since some clients support that interface and not SOCKS.

A potential difficulty is that it's not clear how much of the large and sprawling HTTP specification we would need to implement in order to interoperate usefully.
