Ok, so I still have a couple of issues with the proposed API:

- if its purpose is to create a *default* context, create_default_context() shouldn't have that many arguments. The nice thing with contexts is that you can change their parameters later... So basically the function signature should be:

  create_default_context(purpose, *, cafile, cadata, capath)

Also, the default for "purpose" should probably be serverAuth.

- "PurposeEKU" is cryptic, please simply "Purpose" or "CertPurpose".
