Benjamin already gave the link to the related issue.  The idea is to make the
networking tests depend on as few external hosts as possible, so that we can
reduce spurious skips or failures when one of them is not reachable or changes
its configuration.

The pythontest.net domain was chosen to be able to test things like cookies or
certificates without a potential of compromising python.org related services.

There is a repository at hg.python.org/pythontestdotnet which can be used by
developers; server configuration is maintained together with other Python
services on https://github.com/python/psf-salt.
