3.2 introduces SSL contexts, which allow bundling SSL configuration options, certificates and private keys into a single (potentially long-lived) structure.
http://docs.python.org/dev/py3k/library/http.client.html

http.client.HTTPSConnection should allow passing an SSL context object instead of a cert/key pair.
