The one change I applied to httplib since the 2.2 release was to fix a
problem with invalid urls.  If a colon follows the server name but is
followed by a non-numeric string or no string at all before the start of the
path, an InvalidURL exception is raised.  This is definitely a bugfix
candidate.  Jeremy's hand has been on that module much more heavily.  I
think it should probably be his call.
