Haven't used urllib, but have used urllib2 to do a POST.

Might something like this work...

import urllib2

logon_request = """<LoginRequest>
    <password>"the_password"</password>
    <user>"the_user"</user>
 </LoginRequest>"""

req = urllib2.Request("https://127.0.0.1/api/version/xml",
data=logon_request)
openObj = urllib2.urlopen(req)
response = openObj.read()
