Eric V. Smith added the comment:

It occurs to me that None would also be a fine default, and probably the smarter choice.

Then wrap_socket could say:
if ssl_version is None:
  ssl_version = PROTOCOL_SSLv23

And we could change the default as needed, without being held to the actual value. And wrapper code, like mine, would declare a default of None and things would continue to work across versions.
