What's the point of running the bot over HTTPS ?
With a bot, you want it to perform fast, as it does a lot of edits. The ssl
layer is extra work, both for server and bot program. (And a normal
connection is easier to debug :) ).

SSL support is by default not enabled in python. And I personally have
no experience on how this can be done. The best way seems to be via the
m2crypto package, but I would not like the pywikipediabot package to be
dependent on this package; it is difficult enough to use as is....

Anyone trying to add HTTPS code might want to have Python test for the
package, then have the program behave reasonably both with and without
such an optional package.  This might include emitting an error message
when an HTTPS address is provided on a system which does not support
SSL, while retaining the existing non-SSL functionality for HTTP addresses.

And a HTTPS connectioncuts down the performance.
