Neel:
This looks really great..
But I have this:

Traceback (innermost last):
  File "<interactive input>", line 1, in ?
  File "C:\Program Files\Py152\Lib\httplib.py", line 51, in __init__
    if host: self.connect(host, port)
  File "C:\Program Files\Py152\Lib\httplib.py", line 79, in connect
    self.sock.connect(host, port)
  File "<string>", line 1, in connect
error: (10065, 'winsock error')

when i am trying to reach www.python.org thru a proxy (www.mc.xerox.com).
How to handle this proxy-related situation?

Thanx -- val
