It isn't undocumented in my module.  From 'pydoc httplib':


CLASSES
    exceptions.Exception
        HTTPException
            BadStatusLine
            ImproperConnectionState
                CannotSendHeader
                CannotSendRequest
                ResponseNotReady
            IncompleteRead
            InvalidURL                             <-------  HERE
            NotConnected
            UnimplementedFileMode
            UnknownProtocol
            UnknownTransferEncoding
        HTTPException
            BadStatusLine
            ImproperConnectionState
