The UserString class was moved from its own module to the collections 
module. That change needs to be backported.

Same questions as for UserDict.  Why backport this and break existing 
2.5 code?  There's no benefit.

Is MutableString in the UserString module (and any other class) properly 
handled in 2.6 for transitioning to 3.0?

And there is currently no fixer for UserString (same for UserDict).

Raymond, can you tell me exactly where each module-level thing in 
UserString went and if it was renamed or not? That way the fixer can get

It was moved to the collections module.

I only see UserString in the collections module. Has MutableString been
removed in 3.0 ?

Attaching a patch for the deprecation warning in 2.6 of the
MutableString class. The import fixer for 2to3 is coming next.

Nice patch.  Thanks.

r63767 has the 2.6 changes (with the block in 3.0 in r63768). r63769 has 
the fixer in 2to3 in the sandbox.

Thanks for the patches, Quentin.
