New submission from Brett Cannon <brett at python.org>:

The mimetools module has been deprecated for ages, but it is still used in 
multiple places (a quick grep lists ``cgi``, ``httplib``, ``urllib``, 
``urllib2``, ``test_cookielib``, ``test_multifile``, ``test_urllib``, 
``test_urllib2``, ``test_urllib2net``, ``test_urllib_localnet``, 
``test_urllibnet``, ``test_xmlrpc``). All uses need to be removed before 
the module can go from Py3K.
