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.
