IIUC, this should be possible with a custom opener. While it might be nice
to have this in the stdlib, it would also be a really useful recipe to have
in the docs, showing how to create and install a simple custom opener into
the default set of openers (so that urllib.request gains the ability to
handle data rules automatically). Would you be willing to submit a doc
patch to cover this?
