Maybe it's just my lack of knowledge of SSL, but I don't know what the
sentence "starting from 1.0.0, an SSLv23 client will actually try the
SSLv3 protocol unless you explicitly enable SSLv2 ciphers" is trying
to tell me. If I reword it to say "SSLv23 client will only try..." it
becomes meaningful, but I don't know if that is correct or not.
