Why not to take it into account? 

Imagine that someone wants that requests to "ovinnik.canonical.com" should 
bypass proxy and requests to "ubuntu.com" souldn't. I don't know what for, it's 
just an assumption. 
He adds a hostname "ovinnik.canonical.com" into <proxy bypass list> and checks 
requests in IE. He sees that requests to "ovinnik.canonical.com" bypass proxy 
and requests to "ubuntu.com" go via proxy. And it's ok.
But suddenly he discovers that requests in urllib to "ubuntu.com" bypass proxy 
and it's unexpected. 

I think this behavior of urllib should be at least optional.
