New submission from Vinay Sajip <vinay_sajip at yahoo.co.uk>:

The change to html.parser.tagfind in ba4baaddac8d is causing third-party code (Django) to fail. See


for more information.

Other patterns which changed (e.g. attrfind_tolerant) might also lead to problems. As suggested in the python-dev thread, private versions of these patterns should be used and the existing public ones deprecated, where appropriate.
