Summary: Http redirection error in urllib2.py

Initial Comment:
A url request returns a redirect that contains a space '  ' 
character. Python urllib2.py does not replace this 
character with '%20' and fails.

Entering a line after line 507 of:
            newurl=re.sub(' ','%20',newurl)
         
Corrects my problem.

The problem is more general, so perhaps:

URLQUOTE_SAFE_URL_CHARS = "!*'();:@&=+$,/?%#[]~"
newurl = urllib.quote(url, URLQUOTE_SAFE_URL_CHARS)


Caveat: I still haven't read RFCs 3986/3987...
