Thanks for help on this one -- I got the first POST working. It was a
problem with formatting the multipart/form-data. Once I got the proper
format it worked fine. Interesting you should bring up cookies, though...
The response from the POST returns a cookie that I need to pass along to
the host on the subsequent request. I don't see and methods in httplib
to deal with cookies directly, nor can I find any in the HTTPResponse.py
source that allow me to extract the cookie from the response. I'm sure
I'm missing something. Any additional pointers?
