Terry J. Reedy <tjreedy at udel.edu> added the comment:

Are you talking about top-level code within the urllib module or code within defined functions. If the former, can you quote or point to the place in the file? If the latter, which functions? Just urlopen or others? Does urllib2.urlopen have the same issue? (That replaces urllib.urlopen in 3.x).

Having answered the above, please suggest a specific change in a specific place in the docs.
