probably the lib-creation suffers from the quite pythonic-:)
"we are all programmers syndrom" ( since it's so easy, to do
this and that with just a few lines of python, no one steps up
and condenses this stuff in a rock-solid standards lib)
When I've been hacking at http-wml/html- or https-hbci-testing tools
the tasks to use the http, http/ssl or hbci protocol were main tasks,
so the clients were willing to pay for this extra work, but this
will sure change in the age of web-services ... whatever this
