[New-bugs-announce] [issue2076] xmlrpclib closes connection after each call

New submission from Erno Kuusela:

xmlrpclib is using the old HTTP and HTTPS classes from httplib which are
to quote the docstring, "Compatibility classes with httplib.py from 1.5."
and force the use of HTTP 1.0. This prevents connection reuse and

Attacked is some code we are using as a workaround.

Is the xmlrpclib in the standard library required to keep compatibility
with old python versions?
