Can you help me set up a universal proxy setting on the Galaxy Nexus (Ice Cream Sandwich)?

I am the proud owner of a new Galaxy Nexus. YAY!
But, oh no. The proxy. I am chained to my desk during the day, and our corporate network is only accessible via proxy. Obviously, I don't want to use my data plan when I've got faster and fine WiFi. This was not a problem for my iPhone 3G. I love my Nexus so far, but the lack of universal proxy is definitely most unpleasant. I am aware of the workarounds that allow me to use browsers, but I'm looking for a solution that applies to all my apps/widgets/etc. seamlessly. Is this too much to ask?
I've seen in forums (here) that this is a known issue. However, due to the volume of responses, I'm having trouble parsing what exactly I should do, especially since I've got Ice Cream Sandwich and a lot of the replies seem to cater to Gingerbread or Froyo. I don't know if that's a real issue. Yay fragmentation!
I suspect I will I need to root my phone. I'm totally comfortable doing so, and intended to do so anyway, having rooted and done extensive sweet modifications to my iPhone 3G, and realize I'll wipe my current settings. Can you point me to the tool you used with success (preferably not something with which you have no experience)?
I would also appreciate recs for awesome things I can do with my rooted Nexus. Things like Springboard/Winterboard, Cydia-ish thing -- I know nothing of the Android equivalents!
