If you set sslcontext.verify_mode = ssl.CERT_REQUIRED and call sslcontext.set_default_verify_paths(), the stdlib ought to have enough smarts to use the system root certificates.

I understand this is difficult, as the location of the root certificates may vary between Windows versions or installations.  But if we leave this up to the app developer they are much more likely to disable certificate verification by setting verify_mode to CERT_NONE than to provide secure root certs (or do even less secure things, like using plain HTTP :-).
