Google App Engine deployment with proxy

Similar to Node Package Manager, Python, Java, etc., Google App Engine can read HTTPS_PROXY variable in order to use a proxy server to access the Internet.
set HTTPS_PROXY proxy.server.domain:port
before running the App Engine Launcher and everything will work fine. The reason is that the App Engine is written in Python (on in Java, if you're using that one) and it is Python that is using the proxy server and reads the environment variable.
