[PythonCE] HTTPS support in httplib

Hi John,

From what I remeber from earlier endeavours is that PythonCE doesn't come with the ssl module.

To build the module you'll need to build OpenSSL for your device and then compile Python's ssl module.

This was a while ago though, things may have changed.


Ps. Sorry if this reply is above the original message. Blackberry doesn't give me any options.

I'm developing an application for the handheld that uses xmlrpc lib. 
I'd really like to use https://, however, if I try, it complains:

NotImplementedError: your version of httplib doesn't support HTTPS

So, has anyone implemented https support?  Or does anyone have any 
pointers as to where I need to start looking to provide such support?

I'm using PythonCE-2.5-20061219.  Thanks.
