This is fine for the moment, tough I wish that the TODO pending in
urllib.request with HTTP1.1 persistent connection be removed soon and
will require changes it other places too.

There is bug opened for this. All that would be required is output
behavior of urlretrieve remain same, the implementation details (using
build_opener or using urlopen itself!) may not be relevant and I
think, it can be implemented using urlopen instead going through the
handlers and OpenerDirector, BTW, urlretrive is a convenience
function of some sort.
