An update: in Python 2.7 through 3.3, fixing this should only affect 
http.client/httplib, because they do most of their header parsing themselves. 
Fixing this in later versions of Python is more interesting, as http.client got 
rewritten to use email.parser (which uses email.feedparser). This means any 
change to fix this problem in HTTP will also affect anything else that uses 
this module. Not sure how problematic that is yet.
