AOL Megaproxies?

Is anyone on this list familiar with the AOL "megaproxies"?

I'm trying to find out if they only proxy HTTP/HTTPS traffic or if it's 
all TCP connections. I'm working on setting up load balancers for a 
client application and need to know if I can expect users to keep coming 
from the same IP for the most part.

Normally I'd think that they only proxy web connections, but some links 
say otherwise: 
- Refers to TCP connections as a general topic, not just http/s.
- Refers to the AOL proxies with "all TCP connections"

Anyone have any experience with AOL in this regard?
