information gap. Thx.
Pywikibot supports using OAuth to authenticate. For Wikimedia sites,
it's recommended that you switch to that, and there's documentation
on how to do so.
This will mean Pywikibot 2.0 (which uses httplib2) will be undesirable
for Wikimedia use soon.
We will need to finalise the 2.0 release, and then start work on the
3.0 release which uses requests and supports OAuth.
