M2Crypto.SSL.Context has method "set_options(self, op)". The option
SSL_OP_DONT_INSERT_EMPTY_FRAGMENTS isn't in M2Crypto yet, so you'll have to
pass its actual integer value as the "op" parameter. To add the label to
M2Crypto, modify SWIG/_ssl.i.

I will add this to my code base. Public repository should be up RSN, which
should make keeping all this stuff updated easier.
