The list of Ciphers for Python SSL binding for OpenSSL cannot be ordered in a specific list of preference.

This is a requirement for strict security environment where the ordered cipher list it's very important.

Apache support the ordering of ciphers trough the configuration of SSLHonorCipherOrder:

Also Internet Explorer 7 support Ciphers order configuration:

Not having the ordered cipher list doesn't allow Python SSL stack configuration to be compliant with high security environment, de-facto representing a security vulnerability.

We suggest to fix the issue of lacking that feature.
