> This contains a number of things:
> 1) Improve the documentation of the SSL module, with a fuller
>    explanation of certificate usage, another reference, proper 
>    formatting of this and that.
> 2) Fix Windows bug in ssl.py, and general bug in sslsocket.close().  
>    Remove some unused code from ssl.py.  Allow accept() to be called on 
>    sslsocket sockets.
> 3) Use try-except-else in import of ssl in socket.py.  Deprecate use of
>    socket.ssl().
> 4) Remove use of socket.ssl() in every library module, except for
>    test_socket_ssl.py and test_ssl.py.
