GSA Adds One Instead of Multiple Proxies

So I'm currently subscribed to a proxy provider that provides his list in a bit weird way, but they do work well.

Instead of IP he provides a hostname. But the thing that troubles me is that for multiple proxies, he provides the same hostname for all of them, but uses the username to differentiate the different IP addresses. And so when adding them to GSA Proxy List, GSA recognizes only one proxy. Well since it compares the hostname with all the other proxies and it thinks they are duplicates when in fact they are not.

Here is a sample format:

Host:port:username:password

hostname.com:64000:username1:passowrd
hostname.com:64000:username2:passowrd
hostname.com:64000:username3:passowrd
hostname.com:64000:username4:passowrd
....

So these are all different IPs even though they have the same hostname as host. The username is different so the do provide a different IP address in reality. Only GSA thinks they are one and the same.

Is there a way this can be avoided?
