This bug and Demian’s patch were originally about changing the low-level http.client.HTTPConnection class. I suggest opening a separate issue for changing urllib.request.urlopen() or similar, to avoid confusion.

It should actually be possible to support chunking in urlopen() without any new support from HTTPConnection; just use the lower-level putrequest(), putheader(), endheader(), and send() methods. However, consideration should be given to how it interacts with handlers like HTTPBasicAuthHandler that resend POST data after getting 401 Unauthorized (similar scenario to Issue 5038).
