The documentation above has been available for years and already
contains an example. Are you looking for something specific that
the current documentation doesn't answer?

I've been doing it for years and think it's convenient,
but of course it's a matter of opinion.

The User-Agent can be discovered by letting the proxy (or nc) log it.
It is also usually constant between updates, so checking it once
per update should do.

gpg doesn't seem to set a User-Agent, but that not a problem
as you can either let it use the default forwarding proxy or
change the forwarding based on other criteria like the address
of the keyserver.
