O.R.Senthil Kumaran is working on numerous updates of urllib2.py, urlparse.py, 
and cgi.py for the Google Summer of Code:

As I mention at the end of that post:

".,.you might also check the python-dev discussion of urllib in Sep 2004, 
urlparse in Nov 2005, and the competing uriparse.py proposals (Apr, Jun 
2006)."
