New submission from Andrés Delfino <>:

Documentation says urllib.request.urlretrieve "might become deprecated at some 
point in the future".

IMHO, it's better to provide examples that do not make users rely on API that 
has this label.

I propose the example in the pull request to accomplish exactly the same task 
while not relying on urllib.request.urlretrieve.
