You should probably factor this into two or three functions.  I would
not rename urllib here -- it's too common to want to use "url" for an
actual URL.

You should not use readline() -- just use read().  Which then obviates
the need for the test (there's no real need for using CONTENT_LENGTH for
this purpose IIRC).

The value for "me" is wrong unless your cgi is installed as a top-level
script.
