I guess something we should think about is whether to introduce RFC
2818 hostname checking into urllib.urlopen() and similar utilities.
Presumably one would add an optional arg specifying a file full of
root certs to validate against, and if that arg was present, would
retrieve the hostname info from the validated cert, and do the
client-side check.
