as discussed on IRC:
preconfigure_target() calls a whole bunch of target_configure*
functions directly, the main reason network config is a worker, is
because that's how it grew historically while porting from
old /arch/setup script.   but it doesn't need to be a worker.

Your patch removes the question to the user whether
he wants to export these settings or not, but I think it's fine to skip
that, because people who wouldn't want this behaviour are rare (?), and
either way it's easy to undo.

the only thing needed is to add /etc/profile.d/proxy.sh in the list of
files, when appropriate.

this is a completely different problem, and I believe this fixes it:
