Thanks for the bug report Benjamin.  And thanks for the workaround Seo.  I've opened bug #10518 for this: http://www.codeplex.com/IronPython/WorkItem/View.aspx?WorkItemId=10518.  I haven't had a chance to look at the issue yet though.

Whoah.  I was going to mention that I had also tried doing import fepy,
fepy.install_option('fileobject') and fepy.install_option('network') and
that it had still failed.  However, I must have made some mistake,
because fepy.install_option('network') also works.

So evidently, urllib needs fepy's "network" option while urllib2 needs
fepy's "fileobject" option.  Thanks.
