How do I SFTP over an HTTP proxy with a mac?

I have a Mac running OSX and use programs like Coda and Transmit to send out files. However, on certain networks, the only access I have to the net is via an http proxy (with no https, even!) .
I understand there are ways to tunnel sftp over http but could not find an easy guide (or set of tools) to do so in a way where I can attach such tunneling to one profile (ie. CUSTOMER or WORK) and not have the proxying happen on another profile (ie. HOME)

The challenge comes from the fact that the network is so clamped down that the http way is the only way (the good news is that it's on port 8090 and that windows applications seem to be able to proxy over 8090 without restrictions)
What I'm looking for is a WYSIWYG software package that would allow me to easily establish a link from my sftp client to tunnel over the http port back out to the Internet (and possibly also tunnel things like Skype over that http proxy)
