No, the use of the underscore in _ssl is per convention that C
implementation part of stdlib modules are moved into modules that
start with an underscore. This doesn't mean that the APIs in
those modules are private, otherwise many C implementations we have
in the stdlib would be private :-)

Also note that _ssl.sslwrap is special in that it's the main
interface between _ssl and ssl.

BTW: The sslwrap_simple() API was also removed in 2.7.9.

Note: Any libraries that need to monkey patch the Python
network stdlib will need access to these APIs. Given that the
ssl implementation changed a lot in 2.7.9, I think special care
has to be taken not to break too many of these. Using gevent
and eventlet as test cases for whether backwards compatibility
is good enough sounds like a workable approach, IMO.
