Summary0013851: Webconfig API can't read upstream_proxy.conf

That flag shouldn't be necessary these days. Most of the methods in the File API auto-detect when sudo is necessary.

Oh... I know the issue. It's probably related to a dirty last minute workaround to avoid changes in the Shell class. It could also be a circular dependency issue that we wanted to avoid. I'll investigate.

This last minute upstream proxy feature has been a (comment deleted).

Certain network API calls need to be fast and/or are called a *lot* (e.g. Ajax live pages, console displaying current IP, etc.). We need to avoid sudoers overhead, hence some workarounds.

For now, I will set the upstream_proxy.conf file to less strict file permissions and address the Network API performance in tracker 0013951

Note: "Upstream Proxy" is beta and not even usable at the moment, so I'm not concerned about the temporary file permissions. I also noticed that the feature is not only not flagged as beta, but also missing from the ClearOS documentation.
