It would be nice to know which file you mean :-). for example contains:
    import ssl
    ssl_wrap = ssl.wrap_socket
except ImportError:
    ssl_wrap = socket.ssl

the reason is, I suspect that the ssl module was only included in python
2.6 and is not available in earlier versions. And as there are efforts
to keep offlineimap running on python 2.4, always including this will
not be possible.

BTW, this raises the question of python compatability that we want to
keep. If we bumped our minimum requirements to 2.5 or 2.6 we could do
some things easier, e.g. 2.6 would give us thread pools in the
multiprocess module and we could rely on the ssl module.2.6 has been
released on Oct 2008, so more than 2 years ago...
