I, for one, suggest <http://python-requests.org/> for your sanity.  I
guess it would be something along the lines of:

import requests
xml = """<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" ?> ..."""
files = {'file-field-as-requested-by-the-service': xml}
requests.post(url, files=files, auth=HTTPDigestAuth('user', 'pass'))


Plus http://docs.python-requests.org/en/latest/user/advanced/#ssl-cert-verification
and other stuff from there.

Httplib may not be wrong, but I’m doing this for your sanity.
