I get your point, Julian. What I was worried about is, is it the
"correct thing" to do? Which I am not sure and I believe it is not as
httplib and urllib are not client themselves but are libraries to
build clients. httplib and urllib can be considered as convenient
interfaces over underlying sockets.

Breaking of existing apps is the next question, which should
definitely be avoided. And an explanation in the docs certainly seems
to be the way to go.
