Awesome, thanks so much for getting this fix into jessie; it's been very
helpful for us.

I'm sure you're aware of this, but just adding a little info in case
someone stumbles across this bug and wonders why it isn't working for
them: wheel files aren't normally installed, so the fix will only work
if you've installed the -whl packages needed. In our case, installing
python-requests-whl fixed the problem (but maybe as time goes on, more
could become necessary if modules' APIs change in newer versions).

Happy Wednesday,
