httpx.create_ssl_context() is one such utility function

python -m pip install httpx
>>> import httpx
>>> ctx = httpx.create_ssl_context()

Ironically the context returned doesn't support ctx.minimum_version assignment due to another hangnail in the ssl.SSLContext API!

This is fixed in the default branch however

It looks like there's a consensus being reached, should I create a bpo?

Perhaps first state what seems to be the consensus and invite further comments before going to bpo.

Disclaimer: I'd like to see both:

1. Something on PyPi to help persons who are using ssl on current Python.
2. Something in a future version of Python, that constrains attribute access.

We can do (1) first, and it will help inform (2).
