[New-bugs-announce] [issue35155] Clarify Protocol Handlers in urllib.request Docs

New submission from Denton Liu <liu.denton at gmail.com>:

The urllib.request documentation that they can add their own protocol handlers, however they are unclear on how they should be named. We should replace instances of things like protocol_request with <protocol>_request to make it clear that we are literally replacing "protocol" with the literal protocol.

I am creating this issue because I had to actually read the urllib.request source code in order to figure out how to use the protocol handler APIs.
