Well the web isn't just text, there are pdf, doc, mp3, etc... how can
a proxy possibly know every format in existence? How would it
determinate what file type something is, say you created a ODT file,
putted it into a truecrypt encrypted container, rename that container
to something like porn.mov and send it along? Would the proxy try to
see if it can read the mov file as a Quicktime file, or would it
simply try to interpret the would bit stream as ascii? Oh yea talk
about .mov, it is just a container file, one can use any codec inside
of mov, again, it could be a video and/or audio file... so it could
have the sound of "go go power ranger" while having kiddie porn in the
video of an unknown codec...
