I have to agree with Antoine -- I don't think there's a shortcut that avoids *someone* actually having to understand the code to the point of being able to recreate the same behavior in the different context (pun not intended) of Python 2.

I don't think this makes much sense; Mercurial won't be smarter than you are. I think you'd have a better chance of succeeding by backporting one feature at a time. IMO, you'd first want to backport the _SSLContext base class and SSLContext.wrap_socket(). The latter *will* require some manual coding to adapt to 2.7's different SSLSocket implementation, not just applying patch hunks around.
