When calling ssl.get_server_certificate() with a bad port number (I used 80 when I should have been using 443), the error raised is a bit misleading:

    >>> import ssl
    >>> ssl.get_server_certificate(('',80))
    SSLError: [SSL: WRONG_VERSION_NUMBER] wrong version number (_ssl.c:847)

"SSL: wrong version number" seems to indicate that there is a mismatch between SSL versions supported by the client and the ones supported by the server. When here I guess the problem would better be described as "there is no SSL available at this address+port".
