Hey - I put the indentation in there... it just got stripped out when
it was posted ! :-)

The OP is saying that it hangs rather than returning an error. I
haven't tested it. In general urllib2.urlopen is much better than
urllib.urlopen. urllib has some useful other functions though.

There is PyPi and the Vaults of Parnassus. Neither are really like
CPAN. There has been lots of talk about it recently - everyone agrees
we need one... but no one is offering the bandwidth or the code.

There are lots of modules available though - and usually not too hard
to track down.
