Martin Panter added the comment:

Not quite. This is a two-step deprecation:

1. “htmllib” is removed in favour of HTMLParser. The API is different, so no automatic 2to3 change would be practical.

2. HTMLParser is renamed to “html.parser”, and 2to3 handles this. This is already documented at <https://docs.python.org/2/library/htmlparser.html>.
