Tried this and did not work out. It ended up confusing urllib and
urllib2 objects.
I dont want to import urllib, with the urllib2 itself wanted to work
around this piece of code.

<code>
proxy_user = r'senthil_or'
proxy_password='|\/|pr0c'
#proxy_password = r'|\/|pr0c'

# Setup the Proxy with urllib2

proxy_url = r'http://' + proxy_user + ':' + proxy_password + '@' +
PROXY_IP

proxy_support = urllib2.ProxyHandler({"http":proxy_url})
opener = urllib2.build_opener(proxy_support,urllib2.HTTPHandler)
urllib2.install_opener(opener)
</code>

Thanks,
Senthil
