Howto: Post data to HTTPS server

Greetings everyone,

Anyone got any pointers on how to do this?  Seems like all the references to
examples reside on Starship which is down (and has been for a while).

So far, it seems like I need to get new (patched) urllib.py and httplib.py
modules.  If so, anyone know where from?  Maybe I'm missing something
obvious in the documentation, but all I can find related is this (in online
docs):

    "URLopener() ... Additional keyword parameters, collected in x509, are
used for authentication with the https: scheme. The keywords key_file and
cert_file are supported; both are needed to actually retrieve a resource at
an https: URL."

However when calling this module, I get "unknown url type: https".  Checking
urllib.py source confirms there is no code to handle https:

Level of experience: Been working with Python 1.5.2 for 2 months on W98se
platform; first attempt at web programming.  LOVE this language...

Thanks in advance for any help,
JC
