Whoops, you’re right. I suppose I should have no opinion on whether to deprecate it; I haven’t thought about it for over two decades…

Maybe someone wants to inform mitmproxy?

It's a very popular tool and it comes up using that tool when searching for "import mailcap" using grep.app:

Thanks for catching that! I missed it because I mistakenly searched for '"import mailcap"' in quotes. It looks like mitmproxy isn't vulnerable to the security issue because it only passes a filename from mkstemp() to mailcap, and hopefully mkstemp filenames don't have shell metacharacters in them. However, if we deprecate mailcap mitmproxy will have to change their code.

It's in fact a top-level module.
