Fix bug introduced in 3.4.1 that created incompatible tracebacks in

Yeah, you are right, I changed the errors since the last version of
mechanize -- 0.1.7b -- throws the wrong error. I should have used RE
normalizers to fix the problem instead of rewriting the doc tests. I will go
through the packages that are effected and fix that.
I don't think normalizers are necessary. Testbrowser should have never
raised different exceptions. Probably the best thing to do would be to
put the "HTTPError"s back where "httperror_seek_wrapper" is now.
Specifying versions in either the setup.py or buildout.cfg is a really bad
idea because it makes it impossible for people with different KGSs to work on
I certainly see how putting versions in setup.py is bad, but don't
understand how versions in buildout.cfg cause problems. Can you explain?
Also, I am not sure that including mechanize in the testbrowser release is a
good idea. What if other packages in my repos also use mechanize, but they
rely on the good and bad things of the released packages? I think this will
end in a big mess.
As there's no released version of mechanize that will work, I don't see
another option. What alternative do you suggest?
