pkipplib and HTTP proxies

A quick pkipplip bug report, which I think is really due a bug in Python. (tried 2.3.5 and 2.5.1 on OSX).

I get problems with pkipplip when I run it on a system that has a
http_proxy env defined or a system-wide proxy defined.
It seems that urllib2 does not yet respect the no_proxy env variable.

The following mentions a fix in Python 2.6 for urllib, but doesn't
mention if the same problem has been fixed for urllib2...

See "What's New in Python 2.6 alpha1"
at http://svn.python.org/view/python/trunk/Misc/NEWS?rev=60134&view=markup under #856047

#856047: respect the no_proxy environment variable when using the http_proxy etc. environment variables in urllib.

The problem goes away if the ProxyHandler? is cleared in your doRequest() routine like in (excerpt from the submitted patch) :

 authhandler = urllib2.HTTPBasicAuthHandler(pwmanager)
 proxyhandlr = ullib2.ProxyHandler({})
 opener = urllib2.build_opener(proxyhandlr, authhandler)

This means that the connection will never go through a proxy. Maybe this is fine until Python is fixed...
