I have some codes like:

if response.error and elapsed_time < TIMEOUT and retrial < MAX_RETRIAL:
        partial(self.on_response, callback=callback, retrial=retrial + 1),

But in Tornado 3.0, HTTPResponse.request is now an instance of _RequestProxy instead of the old HTTPRequest. Codes above will not pass fetch's validation:

if not isinstance(request, HTTPRequest):
    request = HTTPRequest(url=request, **kwargs)

Then url becomes an object and will raise an assertion error when try to _unicode. I think it's better to specify the change in DOC and release notes. Or maybe update the fetch to accept an _RequestProxy type request.
