[Python-Dev] httplib is not v6 compatible, is this going to be fixed?

As the link below shows httplib can't handle an IPv6 address, it checks 
for a port number by checking for a : but this simply cuts the IPv6 
address in two and tries to set the port variable as nonsense.


Are there any plans to rectify this, or even an alternative version of 
httplib kicking about that can handle IPv6.
