Fetching RSS-Feeds via Proxy

Go to End

My Provider only allows outgoing connections from webserver via proxy authentification so I need to use curl_opts (CURLOPT_PROXY, CURLOPT_PROXY_AUTH and CURLOPT_USERPWD) for fetching external RSS-Feeds. SS uses SimplePie doesn't it?
Could I extend the file in the sapphire/thirdparty-folder with this options or I'm totally wrong?

I have to use the event_calendar-module and to load external iCal-Feeds. Tried to replace the function call 'file-get-contents' with a new function but this doesnt't work. Any hints?
