So, is this a security issue?  I've been wondering if I should apply the attached patch to the backports-ssl_match_hostname module on pypi.  I was hoping there'd be some information here as to whether this will be going into the stdlib in the future.

Thus far, ssl_match_hostname has just been a backport of the match_hostname function but if this is a security problem, I could press for us to diverge from the python3 stdlib.  It would be easier to make the case if this is seen as a critical problem that will need to be fixed even if the current patch might not be the eventual fix.
