For the record, a while ago I think I made a patch implementing my HTTPConnection.detach() proposal. I can probably dig it up if anyone is interested.

However I gave up on fixing this bug in “urllib.request”. As far as I understand it, the framework does not distinguish the 407 Proxy Authentication Required error of the initial proxy CONNECT request from any potential 407 response from a tunnelled connection. Perhaps a special case could be made; I think there are already lots of special cases. But the maze of urlopen() handlers is already too complicated and I decided this was too hard to bother working on. Sorry :)
