binhex provides an encoding different from binascii.a2b_hex() and binascii.unhexlify().

If deprecate the binhex module, we perhaps should deprecate also binascii.b2a_hqx(), binascii.a2b_hqx(), binascii.rlecode_hqx(), binascii.rledecode_hqx() and binascii.crc_hqx().

But it would be nice to create a separate package on PyPI that provides such functionality before removing it from the stdlib.
