Thanks, you replied before I asked the question :-) (If certificates are validated by default, how do you disable the checks?)
Sorry, I didn't follow the whole discussion and Python 2.7 changes related to security. Does Python 2.7 support loading (automatically) system certificate authorities? Like the Windows certificate store: https://docs.python.org/dev/whatsnew/3.4.html#whatsnew34-win-cert-store
Alex and others have ported all SSL features back to Python 2.7. The SSL module in Python 2.7.9 will have the same feature set as Python 3.4.
