There's a www/py-beautifulsoup that's newer, I think this was for compatibility with other things, but they have all been removed, so I think this can go too.

Beautiful Soup 3 was the official release line of Beautiful Soup from May 2006 to March 2012. It does not support Python 3 and it will be discontinued on or after December 31, 2020—one year after the Python 2 sunsetting date. If you have any active projects using Beautiful Soup 3, you should migrate to Beautiful Soup 4 as part of your Python 3 conversion.
