The doc for the html module was added in 5633af590057 (see #2830) and it was previously undocumented even if it was importable.  Moving the versionadded under html.escape sounds good to me.

As a side note, it would be better to do

    # Python 3.2 deprecates cgi.escape() and adds html.escape() as a replacement.
    from html import escape
except ImportError:
    from cgi import escape

rather than importing the whole cgi module as "html" just to use the escape function.
