I'm opposed to adding FIPS knobs to Python's SSL module for a few reasons:

- FIPS is a bad standard (which I'm happy to talk at length about)
- OpenSSL is regularly on the verge of dropping FIPS support (https://www.openssl.org/blog/blog/2016/07/20/fips/ is the most recent rescue from the brink of removal)
- It further ties us to the OpenSSL API, in favor of being a more general purpose SSL API.
