I guess this is a test-related feature request: something that would be
nice, and that I don't believe httplib2 specifically allows (though
maybe I am unaware of it) is a clear/documented way to mock http calls.
wsgi_intercept provides this in a kind of general way, and includes
some httplib2 support, but direct support in httplib2 (and the stdlib)
would be very nice, and I think encourage people to do better testing.
