Select a single proxy from a set of proxies available for the given host. This implementation selects in the following manner: 1) If proxies provided is null or array of 0 length, null is returned. If only one proxy is available (array of length 1) then the entry is returned. If proxies provided is length > 1, then if the type of a proxy in the array matches the given protocol (e.g. http, https), then the first matching proxy is returned. If the protocol does not match any of the proxies, then the *first* proxy (i.e. proxies[0]) is returned.

protocol - the target protocol (e.g. http, https, scp, etc). Will not be null.
proxies - the proxies to select from. May be null or array of length 0.
proxy data selected from the proxies provided.
