This patch adds SSL support for nntplib, since it
really isn't that simple to just extend the class and
add such support, and there are plenty of NNTP servers
out there which can only be accessed over SSL. Should
be backwards compatible with nntplib, and has been
tested to be as such. Of course this library faces
limitations on how well it can authenticate SSL
certificates due to current limitations (as of 2.4) in
socket.ssl, no new additions seem to have been made in
2.5, at least none are listed

This patch lacks documentation changes. Also, "self.ssl" doesn't seem to get set when usessl is False, so this will result in an AttributeError in the two changed methods.

I'll take a look at this.

Georg got it right -- this patch is bogus.  I'm going to close it as 
"won't fix".  Feel free to re-open it as an RFE with a good patch.
