Hello list, 

I've been looking for a way to explicitly disable the use of proxies with 
urllib2, no matter what the environment dictates. Unfortunately I can't find 
a way in the documentation, and reading the source leads me to believe that 
something like the following does the job: 


Where req is a urllib2.Request instance. So is there an official way of doing 
this? Perhaps it should be added in the documentation?

Thanks in advance,
