socket.error now inherits from IOError as of trunk r58067:

Change socket.error to inherit from IOError rather than being a stand
alone class.  This addresses the primary concern in

 http://bugs.python.org/issue1706815

python-dev discussion here:

 http://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-dev/2007-July/073749.html

I chose IOError rather than EnvironmentError as the base class since
socket objects are often used as transparent duck typed file objects
in code already prepared to deal with IOError exceptions.

also a minor fix:

 urllib2 - fix a couple places where IOError was raised rather than
URLError.
           for better or worse, URLError already inherits from IOError so
           this won't break any existing code.

 test_urllib2net - replace bad ftp urls.
