Some proxies like Burp and Fiddler are extensible through scripts or plugins. I think this feature would help with some of the shortcomings of Privoxy, like the lack of variables to store information for later use. For example suppose you want to replace a value in the response body with a value in the request header. Currently you can't do that with Privoxy.

    Thanks for the suggestion.

    Script support is already on the TODO list:
    57) Allow piping into external programs to allow more powerful
    filters and policy decisions. Incomplete support available
    in Fabian's popen branch.
