The SSLv23 row that can be read in the socket creation section in the documentation for the ssl module looks incorrect:

by my tests (with python 2.7.8) that row should read:

yes no yes yes yes yes

instead of:

yes no yes no no no 

as it does now.

Since a client specifying SSLv23 should be (and it seems to be) able to negotiate the highest available version that the server can offer, no matter if the server has chosen a tls version.

Is this an error in the documentation, or is there any situation in which the current values hold true?
