Just as a quick guideline. If you are talking about context manager
support for urlopen, it is available and present in 3.x but not on
2.7. And I fear, it is late to make it available on 2.7, because it is
a feature.

In any case, as Terry requested, a simple snippet would help us
understand the problem and original poster's expectation.
