Interesting that upstream doesn't get notified when a package is about to
be pulled from the distro for security reasons :-(.

THe fix that has been posted to the debian bug tracker would work under
python >=2.6 where ssl_wrap calls ssl.wrap() but it would fail to work
under python 2.4 and python 2.5 where ssl_wrap calls socket.ssl() (which
doesn't support those additional cert parameters). So there will be more
work required if we want to remain python 2.4/5 compatible when using
