 proxy more widely distributed".  The `snowflake-client` built here is
 independent of the proxy.  Anyways, we're on the same page.  Sorry.

 No worries, I should have framed it better. :)

 Thanks. How about this: We get snowflake into the nightlies for now and
 plan to ship it into the alpha after the next one (which is due in January
 2017). And you are trying to take care of #20813 meanwhile? We need to
 freeze the code for the next alpha next week and it seems to me that
 timeframe might be too short to get #20813 done sufficiently. Or am I
 wrong in that regard?
