Comment #1 on issue 3842 by rbtools should use the requests module instead of depending on urllib to do things

We've evaluated requests before. It might be worth re-evaluating it before RBTools 1.0 at some point.

The reason we didn't go with requests in the past is that they had much narrower Python compatibility support than we do. This is not currently the case (we both have a minimum of Python 2.6), but that can of course change at any point.

Assuming they're planning to be on Python 2.7 long-term, and assuming we decide to move to 2.7 as a minimum, we can move to using requests.

That is, however, a large project, as we have a lot of infrastructure we'd need to carefully port over and thoroughly test.
