Sorry for pitching in late. It is good that this topic got started well.
I had submitted this task as G-SoC and went ahead with fixing bugs
with urllib2 and merging the overlapping methods.
As you can see, I have not worked it quite a while and I have always
been "thinking" of emailing WSIG to go ahead with the project.
I would like to continue working on the same and would like to invite
other interested parties as well. Yes, with some guidance, I hope that
we can bring up the urilib (urlllib2,urllib,urlparse combined and
according latest URI Spec) before Python 3.0.
I shall have a look into httplib2 which is referenced in this thread as well.
Please let me know your comments.
