Use the more modern six library to handle
urllib2modules have been significantly reworked in
Python 3 to provide a much more consistent interface.
Additionally, the 'fast' versions of
pickleare now merged with
the 'slow' versions, so in the future we'll be able to just use
picklewithout the fallbacks.
'six' has some adaptations to help with this for the time being. It's not as
pretty as I would like, but it works. The ugliest part of this is for places
where we override
netloc\_uses, which isn't among the "moved attributes" in six.
Ran unit tests.
