>From what I understand the problem should be fixed in urllib so that it

recent 3.x versions but not on 2.7.
As for ftplib, I don't like the solution of using a `transfer_in_progress`
flag in all commands. I see that as a cheap way to work around the fact
that the user may forget to call voidresp() and close the socket after
It probably makes sense to just update nt/transfercmd() doc instead and
make that clear.
