Chef integration needs option to set 'http_proxy' and 'no_proxy' configurations in the nodes 'client.rb' before bootstrap

there is an issue when Scalr is used with chef, and the cloud nodes that scalr/chef is deploying to is behind proxies. In these cases chef will need to have 'http_proxy'/https_proxy/no_proxy configured so the runlist that is specified in the scalr setup can be run. So far it is not possible to deploy/add these configurations in the phase 'OnHostInit' as that /etc/chef/client.rb file does not exist. and the next phase BeforeHostUp scalr has already attempted to bootstrap/run the runlist. Is there a way/method that we can deploy these proxy configurations?

    Currently it's not possible to specify custom options in client.rb. We understand the need in this feature, so added it into our roadmap.
