The new urllib package landed between the last beta and now, but
without fixers. Issue3316 has potential ones, but they have some
tweaks that need to be made before they are release quality. If the
beta goes out 2to3 will not be able to fix imports for urllib and
urllib2. Don't know if that is enough to hold up the release or just
something to put in the release notes that this will be resolved by
the next beta; made it a release blocker to catch your eye, Barry. =)

Oh, and fixers for test.test_support to test.support is not in either,
but this is probably such a small use case outside the core that I am
not sweating bullets for writing a new fixer just for this one case.
