I believe that the original poster is talking about using stunnel's
support for an HTTP(S) proxy using the CONNECT protocol (look for
the "protocol" keyword in the configuration manual).

However, it does indeed seem that proxy authentication has not been
implemented yet; it is in the to-do list - "Add user-defined headers
to CONNECT proxy requests" is one of the items listed in the source
distribution's TODO file.  You'd have to ask Dr. Trojnara about
the chances of it being implemented soon, although it may be under
similar conditions as the rest of the items in this list, as stated
at the start of the TODO file.
