Add ability to use socks5 proxy

The attached diff adds the ability to use socks5 proxying to qgis for users working behind one of these proxy types. The fix also contains changes to the python plugin installer. Changes should not affect anything that does not explicitly recognize the change, so wms provider etc will not be affected...

Plugin Installer reads proxyType from QSettings now (from rev 9700). It recognizes following values for PyQt 4.3: 'Socks5Proxy', 'NoProxy', 'HttpProxy' and their integer equivalents. For PyQt 4.4 it supports also values 'HttpCachingProxy' and 'FtpCachingProxy' and their integer equivalents. In case of any unsupported value, the DefaultProxy is used.
I don't implement frontend for setting it due to the gui freeze.
