That is actually a private attribute of urllib (not urllib2) module
present from the very first version. It is intended strictly for
overriding purposes not for anything else. During the merge in py3k,
it has taken its place in urllib.request. I see no harm in it being
there. If it needs to be un-advertised, perhaps we can remove its
reference from the docs.
