At the moment I want it to be just one download with no dependencies
other than Python, which tends to rule out any C extensions. I wouldn't
mind adding it as an optional import, in the same way as cElementTree is
urlgrabber can do multiple threads and keepalives, which are probably
key to getting good performance? I guess pycurl can do this too. Do
you have any idea how they compare on other factors?
