There is a bug with https:// url.
The puthon access http:// instad of https:// what is incorrect.
The openssl-python is installed.
Test case:
----------- python program
import urllib

run the program above and look in /var/log/httpd
The performed reques was http (port 80), not https (port 443).
Also if openssl is not installed the request should fail,
not silently use different protocol.
