Add urlfetch to download external resources

Registered by Pierre Padrixe (stannie) on 2014-05-02

* Fetch http(s) resources hosted remotely
* Download files chunk by chunk (chunk_size parameter)
* Returns IOError if file byte max_size parameter is exceeded
Note that it will provide a reliable way to check mack_size: it doesn't simply checks Content-Length Header but does the max_size check at each chunk iteration.
* Also work with file:// scheme ("file" has to be specified in allowed_schemes parameters)

A common implementation is used in Heat and Solum, the Solum version was ripped from Heat:
