I'm not sure I get your suggestion. What the M2Crypto module does is:

	import m2urllib 

in its __init__.py, which blatantly does

	from urllib import *
	URLopener.open_https = open_https
	
in turn, so there's no subclassing going on, and AFAIK, the original urllib
code is irreversibly overwritten. Am I right?

Thanks,
