hallo,
i changed to the new python httplib and looked with a packet analyser and
wondering why the new lib always sets this 2 headers automatically?


Host: www.google.com
Accept-Encoding: identity


i would like to set all headers by hand and tryed it with:

        c = httplib.HTTPConnection( server, 80 )

        #### den Request (z.b. IE5 Simulation)
        c.putrequest('GET', path)

        c.putheader('Accept', 'image/gif, image/x-xbitmap, image/jpeg,
image/pjpeg, application/vnd.ms-powerpoint, application/vnd.ms-excel,
application/msword, */*')
        c.putheader('Accept-Language', 'de')
        c.putheader('User-Agent', 'Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5;
Windows NT 5.0')
        #c.putheader('Host', server)
        c.putheader('Connection', 'Keep-Alive')
        c.endheaders()
        r = c.getresponse()

        print r.status, r.reason
        data = r.read()


is it possible to avoid automatic appending of  this 2 headers in the new
httplib?

thanks,

alex
