Yes, I agree. Methods like PUT & DELETE also makes sense in urllib2.
Folks currently wrap those around httplib.
HEAD can be implement in a straight forward way using httplib, but if
Request has a method parameter, which takes HEAD,PUT or DELETE and
behaves accordingly, that would make it complete.
And as expected, many voted down -1 on history support. ( I guess
web-sig defaults the reply-to To: rather than List:)
