You can also read web pages using http POST and GET messages
to a socket using the socket library, but most folks find it easier
to use urllib.

For that matter you can display output to sys.stdout, so
why bother with print?

The library functions make things easier and more consistent.
Somebody else has debugged the code so you don't have to...
