Given that urllib2 doesn't support https through a proxy, it would
probably cause a problem for easy_install, etc. :-)
We had to create a custom urllib2 Handler for a couple of our
applications. I just looked to see if I should pursue re-working our
solution as a patch and saw that Christopher Li has already posted a
patch. http://bugs.python.org/issue1424152 And there is also this
outstanding ticket: http://bugs.python.org/issue1448934.
