It would be great to have a full-featured native library that
handles all of the subtleties - redirects, cookies, etc.
But it could be that the most robust solution
currently is still the following:
(Using -package MissingPY)
main = do
getHtml :: String -> IO String
getHtml url = do
urlObj <- toPyObject url
handle <- callByName "urllib2.urlopen" [urlObj] 
r <- getattr handle "read"
pyObject_Call r   >>= strOf
