Me too.

I hadn't looked at it, but now have. The _computeHostValue method looks
very promising :-)  We've yet to switch to 9.0.0.

So httplib (apparently) changed to drop the :port part of the Host header
in Python 2.6, and now the Twisted client has added it. I think you guys
are right, so I wonder why httplib dropped it.
