I needed to set some headers, like Referer and Cookie, which is why I
went with httplib. I sniffed port 80 to find out how what was being
sent by my browser, and then constructed the headers from that info,
so I think my headers were ok. Can't say for sure.
I suppose the headers can also be set with the urlencode format of
urllib, so this is probably the way to go; thanks for the suggestion.
Still curious why the read is so slow with httplib, though.
