seems somewhat silly, but the best I can think of right now. I could ask the web-sig if they think we could try to get rid of either urllib or urllib2, but I suspect they will say no.
OTOH, I think that having a module called urllib, and other called urllib2 is a result of the evolution and not the best configuration.
The web-sig or python-dev should pronounce what to do with this.
IMHO, the best is to have one module, with the best of both worlds.
What to do with the methods that will be lost because of keeping a slightly different one with the same functionality? We could keep them with a deprecation warning, or simply let them disappear (+0 for the former, even considering we're in 3k).
