The urllib.request documentation intermingles old 2.x urllib (FancyURLopener, etc.) with urllib2-inherited (*Handler, build_opener, etc.) primitives without making any distinction. This makes it rather confusing for the reader to figure out which ones to use.

Ideally, the use of the old primitives should also be discouraged.

@Senthil do you still intend to run with this or could somebody else pick it up?

FancyURLopener, URLopener etc are deprecated since 3.3.

Should we close this issue or repurpose it for removal?

Ah we already have issue40673 for removal.
