Martin Wilck added the comment:
I think this is a major issue because urllib2 is widely used, and any
application using it is useless behind a HTTPS proxy. A Prominent
example in the Linux world is yum, the Fedora Linux package management
tool. HTTPS proxies are a extermely common in the corporate world.
The cookbook recipe shows that it is possible to implement a CONNECT
proxy (with quite a few lines of code, actually), but because it's not
part of urllib2 it has been broken by python 2.5.
