Please, is it possible to put more information about the purpose parameter to the documentation of ssl.create_default_context()? It's not obvious that SERVER_AUTH should be used for client sockets and not server sockets. It took me a while to discover this, while all I was getting was only "SSLEOFError: EOF occurred in violation of protocol" (which is also not helpful).

This is especially confusing, because OpenSSL uses serverAuth and clientAuth (for extendedKeyUsage configuration) in the exactly opposite meaning.
