Hey Liviu,

your guess is right, libSoup is what requires threading (actually a bug
the libSoup maintainers are aware of) and the latest Midori always
initializes thread support to work around that.

As for the proxy, the latest libSoup should support that but Midori
doesn't currently deal with any of that. I am actually going to look
into whether I can support that.
