If you're not passing large amounts of data around, httplib looks pretty
easy to hook up:
# Pretty much straight from the Library Reference:
conn = httplib.HTTPConnection("www.python.org")
r1 = conn.getresponse()
data1 = r1.read()
# pass data1 to an XML processor's parseString() or similar method
# exercise for the reader ;-)
