afraid not.. simple to create your own, NOTE that key words can be supplied more than once. Hence... 
import urllib
def urldecode(query):
   d = {}
   a = query.split('&')
   for s in a:
      if s.find('='):
         k,v = map(urllib.unquote, s.split('='))
         except KeyError:
            d[k] = [v]
   return d
s = 'Cat=1&by=down&start=1827&start=1234&anotherCat=me%3Dow%7e'
print urldecode(s)
prints out following and preserves the order of inputs for those keys given more than once as with 'start' key
{'start': ['1827', '1234'], 'anotherCat': ['me=ow~'], 'by': ['down'], 'Cat': ['1']}
hope that helps..

Subject: urldecode function?

is there a function that does the opposite of urllib.urlencode? 

for example

returns a dictionary with {'Cat':1, 'by':'down','start':1827)
