That is an OpenStreetMap specific file, to make it easy to use and  
keep the osm tile urls up to date, without everyone having to do it  
themselves. If you want to use some different tile you will need to do  
a little extra work, or use an alternative source. One example that  
someone else mentioned was the information freeway.

I might have been getting confused with your mentioning of the python  
libraries earlier in the thread.
