urllib.request can not support many standard HTTP 1.1 METHODS including HEAD, PUT, DELETE.

Adding this would be trivial (either as a special header "METHOD") or its own paramater, creating additional use, with little or no drawback.

In issue #1673007 I submitted a patch that enables the programmer to create a Request instance and specify the method to use.

Can this issue be closed as a duplicate of #1673007?  This specific request for a "method" parameter to the Request constructor is dealt with there.

Closing as duplicate. #1673007 tackles the same issues and has a few patches available.
