I've identified a couple of problems that are slowing it down.  One
problem is that every socket.connect call in Python does a DNS

My http client based on that is working reasonably well, at least for
the one server I test it against.  It's still a bit messy.

That's strange.

I was unclear there.  Yes, I agree about that usage.  What I meant was
that also tests should be able to say "I don't want to run", for example
because they can't be tested on Windows.  Having them just pass without
doing the tests makes me uncomfortable.
