[docs] [issue33003] urllib: Document parse_http_list

New submission from W. Trevor King <wking at tremily.us>:

Python has had a parse_http_list helper since urllib2 landed in 6d7e47b8ea (EXPERIMENTAL, 2000-01-20).  With Python3 it was moved into urllib.request, and the implementation hasn't changed since (at least as of 4c19b9573, 2018-03-05).  External projects depend on the currently undocumented function [1,2], so it would be nice to have some user-facing documentation for it.  If that sounds appealing, I'm happy to work up a pull request.
