Titus: not sure what you're using this FakeResponse for, but I strongly 
advise against its continuing to exist.  The mechanize code here is 
horrible and obscure bugs lurk for anybody who tries to use a 
response-like object that is not one of the objects returned by mechanize 
itself.  Does mechanize.make_response do what you need?

(Of course I want to fix this in mechanize, but after the forever-receding 
stable release.  Dare I say that the next release looks like it will be 
marked stable?  no, better not...)
