The docs for HTTPConnection.set_tunnel(host,port) are ambiguous.  They simply say "Set the host and the port for HTTP Connect Tunnelling".  But should I specify the address of the server *through* which I want to tunnel, or the address of the *endpoint* of the tunnel?

Turns out it's the latter, but I just wasted an hour "debugging" thinking it was the former :-(

Attached is a simple doc patch to try to clarify this issue.
