As the documentation says "If context is specified and has a verify_mode of either CERT_OPTIONAL or CERT_REQUIRED, then by default host is matched against the host name(s) allowed by the server’s certificate. If you want to change that behaviour, you can explicitly set check_hostname to False."

It is rather weird that HTTPSConnection has its own "check_hostname" parameter independent of the one on the SSL context.

Alex, what do you think of this patch?
