Many Python unit tests use http://www.python.org/ but the URL is directed to https://www.python.org/. Tests fail if the ssl module is missing.

I modified test_urllib2.test_issue16464() but then I realized that many more tests are impacted: many tests of test_urllibnet.

Should we modify all unit tests to skip them if ssl is missing, or should we use another HTTP URL?
