Httplib2
========
A comprehensive HTTP client library, httplib2.py supports many features left out of other HTTP libraries.

HTTP and HTTPS
--------------
HTTPS support is only available if the socket module was compiled with SSL support. 

    
Keep-Alive
----------
Supports HTTP 1.1 Keep-Alive, keeping the socket open and performing multiple requests over the same connection if possible. 

    
Authentication
--------------
The following three types of HTTP Authentication are supported. These can be used over both HTTP and HTTPS.

* Digest
* Basic
* WSSE

Caching
-------
The module can optionally operate with a private cache that understands the Cache-Control: header and uses both the ETag and Last-Modified cache validators. 


All Methods
-----------
The module can handle any HTTP request method, not just GET and POST.


Redirects
---------
Automatically follows 3XX redirects on GETs.


Compression
-----------
Handles both 'compress' and 'gzip' types of compression.


Lost update support
-------------------
Automatically adds back ETags into PUT requests to resources we have already cached. This implements Section 3.2 of Detecting the Lost Update Problem Using Unreserved Checkout


Unit Tested
-----------
A large and growing set of unit tests.
