However that’s entirely in the domain of pip/requests feature requests and not really related to python-dev/this PEP itself.

As an FYI I played with this on Mac far enough to prove that it’d work: https://github.com/Lukasa/requests-darwin <https://github.com/Lukasa/requests-darwin>

It’s not anywhere near feature complete, but it basically works pretty ok. Of course, ideally Requests would just get entirely out of the way at this point because it duplicates a lot of NSURLSession’s logic, but it’s an approach that can work.
