As of Python 2.6 you can no longer pass an array to 

Issue1065257 added code to httplib to attempt to determine whether a 
file-like object was passed to certain methods (e.g. send), and to 
stream the data if so.

The patch uses "hasattr(obj, 'read')" as a proxy for "is a file-like 

array.array objects have a method called "read" that is almost entirely 
disanalogous to the "read" method on a file-like object.

Hilarity ensues.

That method of array.array has been deprecated since 1.5.1 according to
the docs.  Too bad nobody finished the job and removed it.

Perhaps array.array could be special cased in the relevant code until
the method can actually be removed.

Here is a patch special-casing array.array in httplib.HTTPConnection.send 
in Python 2.6.

These methods don't even produce a DeprecationWarning in current 2.6, I
don't think it's ok to remove them.
As for the special casing patch, it would be better with a test.

I have updated the patch with a unittest for httplib.HTTPConnection.send.

Why do you need to give a non-empty body to the FakeSocket? 

Other than that, looks fine.

Oh, I suppose I don't. I had simply copy and pasted those four lines from 
the previous method. That line could easily be removed.

Remove unused 'body'.

issue6790-python2.6.diff is ok, can you commit to trunk and then merge?
