i believe you have to use httplib for that:
<http://docs.python.org/lib/module-httplib.html>

examples here:
<http://docs.python.org/lib/httplib-examples.html>

basically you pass auth headers whie
using PUT/DELETE verbs:

## untested! ##

headers = {
   "Authorization": authheader # your base 64 str
}
conn.request("PUT", "/your/url/here", body, headers)

HTH,
