They are, at least in my setup. When I choose "manually specify proxy settings" and set a proxy there (using my university's proxy via an ssh tunnel), it uses that proxy, and shows the correct error message if the tunnel is down. What is your setup? (And, if you use konq's adblock feature, are the settings used in Akregator?)
We had a bug report via mail about non-working proxy, but the reporter wrote me later that it did not work because his company's firewall blocked everything with "gator" in the browser identification.

We don't use even the half ass ;-) The browser just uses the generic KHTML options (including adblock and proxy settings) which are shared with konqueror (and also configured in its config dialog).
Konq specific settings aren't used right now. The intention is to keep the internal browser in Akregator simple, and many options can't be applied without reimplementing the respective konqueror features. Only a few of them could, but that would need examination on feature-by-feature basis. Also, the config framework isn't perfect for sharing these settings, because you can't receive a notification in akregator when someone changes his settings in konqueror. So changes wouldn't get applied to akregator before akregator restart which is confusing for a user.

6 months being "long" or not is a matter of definition ;-)
There is nobody working on new features right now (me due lack of time), and there is a whole of bunch of other stuff with higher priority than making the internal browser more sophisticated.
Just because a request isn't implemented short/mid-term, it doesn't mean the list is ignored. As soon as I have time again for development or somebody else jumps in, we consider the entries here. So adding wishlist items isn't futile. It's the best place to store a request. I can just give no time frame for any feature at the moment.
