There's nothing in the standard library, I believe, that includes both 
client and server functionality in the same module. So you would need to 
glue them together.

If you want a simple net proxy server I seem to remember the chameleon 
system allows you to write one in about twelve lines. If it has to be 
HTTP-specific, with header parsing and the like, you might want to think 
about Twisted, which supports both client and server functionality and 
tries to make it easy to plumb things together in pipelines.
