I suppose. Certainly, none of the "default" cases are affected. The
problem is it's impossible to have cert validation w/o hostname checking
by passing a context to some higher level API than HTTPSConnection (like
xmlrpclib) because HTTPSConnection tries to be clever. Ideally, the
check_hostname argument wouldn't exist, and everything would come from
the context.
