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.
