Consider the definition of httplib.HTTPConnection.__init__(), in Python 2.6.

   def __init__(self, host, port=None, strict=None,

This could be replaced with:

   def __init__(self, host, port=None, strict=None,

or, perhaps better, 

   def __init__(self, host, port=None, strict=None,

This timeout value is passed to the call in socket.create_connection, so I believe if it is overriden, it only applies to the relevant sockets and not to all sockets globally.

Note: I am not arguing here that this SHOULD be done - it would break existing applications, especially those that were written before Python 2.6 - merely that it COULD be done.
