I don't see any point in merely bringing the codecs back, without any convenience API to use them. If I need to do

  import codecs
  result = codecs.getencoder("base64").encode(data)

I don't think people would actually prefer this over

  import base64
  result = base64.encodebytes(data)

I't (IMO) only the convenience method (.encode) that made people love these codecs.
