[New-bugs-announce] [issue1177] urllib* 20x responses not OK?

New submission from 
					Jim Jewett

Under the http protocol, any 2xx response is OK.

urllib.py and urllib2.py hardcoded only response 200 (the most common).

http://bugs.python.org/issue912845 added 206 as acceptable to urllib2, but 
not any other 20x responses.  (It also didn't fix urllib.)

Suggested for 2.6, as it does change behavior.

(Also see duplicate http://bugs.python.org/issue971965 which I will try to 
close after opening this. )
