Providing a simple keyword as a workaround for bypassing the FIPS restrictions, could potentially violate the standard, as there is no way from the python side to verify if the code in question is used for security purposes or not.

Thus I would close this issue as wontfix. Application distributors who would like their code to work under FIPS should preferably use the FIPS approved ciphers.
