What version of Python are you using?  HTTPConnection is relatively new
(Python 2.0 or 2.1 I believe).  In 1.5.2, the only connection class was HTTP
(retained in current versions only for backward compatibility, hence no
longer documented).  You *may* be able to get away with simply replacing

    h = httplib.HTTPConnection(...)


    h = httplib.HTTP(...)

for simple usage.
