Thanks, Audun.  If you look at the code, you'll see that both a
connect method and a do_handshake method already exist, and work
pretty much as you describe.  The issue is what to do when the user
doesn't use them -- specifies do_handshake_on_connect=True.

> Another way of doing it could be to expose a connect() method on the ssl

> spirit as the do_handshake_on_connect parameter since no existing code
> will break.  The caller then calls connect() until it does not return
