> The ssl module exposes OpenSSL's PRNG and advertises the API as secure

AFAICT, Python's PRNG isn't reset after fork, so I don't think OpenSSL's
should be reset.
OTOH, multiprocessing does reseed the random module after fork, so it
should also do so for the ssl module if already loaded.

We may add a note in the ssl docs stating that it's better to reseed
after fork().
