urllib2, https, and proxies

P: n/a
Hello all (well, some of you I guess),

Is it true that you can't configure a proxy handler for urllib2 to
fetch https URLs through a proxy ?

I know that you pass a dictionary, keyed by protocol, to the proxy
handler - but when we get an exception when we fetch an https URL.

Fetching the same URL, through the same proxy, with a browser works
fine.

Sorry I can't post code and a traceback - can do that tomorrow if
necessary.

Best Regards,

Fuzzy
