Hm, I /did/ try that but ran into issues. Swapping the custom finder for the monkey patch now seems to work as expected though. Could be that I was doing something else at the time that caused it not to work.
I'll keep running with that and will ping the thread if the issues surface again.

What don't you simply monkeypatch sys.modules, e.g.:
sys.modules['http'] = myhttplib
or doesn't it work as desired?
