[docs] [issue9637] docs do not say that urllib uses HTTP_PROXY

New submission from Kirikaza <kirikaza at rambler.ru>:

In practice urllib reads HTTP_PROXY firstly and then if HTTP_PROXY is empty urllib reads http_proxy. Documentation (http://docs.python.org/library/urllib.html) says nothing about HTTP_PROXY.

Maybe it affects all the versions of Python.
