Where can I find out more information on HTTP user authentication? I have 
seen the RFC before, but it's a bit too technical to follow. I think Python 
does not include the authentication/cookie handling part probably because 
out of concern about abuses. :)

Does anyone know where I can find more info on the authentication and cookie 
protocol stuff? Is there any Python module already written to handle these 

The idea is to be able to fetch external webpages automatically using 
Python, including providing the necessary auth and cookie info. Of course 
this opens up a whole can of security worms, but heck, it's open information 
and someone must already have written something in Python already.
