Oh, in Python 3.4, create_default_context() uses PROTOCOL_SSLv23, SSLSocket, wrap_socket() and _create_unverified_context() use PROTOCOL_SSLv23 by default.

In Python 3.5, get_server_certificate() now uses PROTOCOL_SSLv23 by default because test_ssl failed on the host see issue #20896.

Issue #20896: ssl.get_server_certificate() now uses PROTOCOL_SSLv23, not PROTOCOL_SSLv3, for maximum compatibility.
