Please always use PROTOCOL_SSLv23 since this is the only forward compatible way of telling OpenSSL to use the best protocol available.

Any of the other options such as PROTOCOL_TLSv1 will fix the protocol version to that one protocol version, whereas PROTOCOL_SSLv23 means to use any protocol starting with SSLv2. In the context options you can then disable SSLv2 and SSLv3 to e.g. have the connection use TLS 1.0 or later.
