[New-bugs-announce] [issue28294] HTTPServer server.py assumes sys.stderr != None

New submission from Jaap van der Velde:

On line 556 of server.py, the sys.stderr.write assumes that sys.stderr is assigned and not None.

However, when developing Windows services using the pypiwin32 library (as an example), sys.stderr == None

A workaround is to override the log_message method of the BaseHTTPRequestHandler, but it seems to me that the method should not assume the availability of stderr?
