[New-bugs-announce] [issue16702] Force urllib2_localnet test not to use http proxies

New submission from Jeff Knupp:

test_urllib2_localnet is concerned with testing connections only using 'localhost' or '' hosts. If a user has the "http_proxy" environment variable set, these test will likely fail as the proxy won't have any idea where to send a request for 'localhost'.

Patch makes urllib.request.urlopen ignore proxies set in the environment. Note that this only works for http proxies. https proxies are trickier and require more work.
