Can we make Browse read some global configuration (e.g. 
/etc/sugar/browserc, slightly similar to /etc/iceweasel/iceweaselrc) as 
well, so the system administrator can set defaults?

Setting network.proxy.type to 4 manually in about:config enabled WPAD in 
Browse for me, so adding the following line to the global Browse config 
(if it existed) would be enough to enable WPAD for all users by default:

user_pref("network.proxy.type", 4);

PS: When trying to reproduce, make sure to unset proxy environment 
variables (http_proxy, https_proxy, ftp_proxy) as those take precedence 
over WPAD (which is good!).
