The www.python.org website was just redesigned, and apparently is running on some new infrastructure which always responds to `GET /` requests with a body using `Content-Encoding: gzip`.

Python's test suite includes some tests which fetch http://www.python.org/, and some of the tests in `test.test_urllibnet.urlretrieveNetworkTests` are now failing, because they expect the server to return un-gzip'd UTF-8 text. :(

The full test output (from Python 3.3.4) is attached.
