Any need for quick releases to address regressions is always a
collective failure - for them to happen, the error has to be in
something not checked by our test suite, and the code change has to be
one where nobody monitoring python-checkins spotted a potential issue.

Hopefully the fixes for these regressions also came with new test
cases (although that is obviously difficult for upstream regressions
like those in the PyOpenSSL release bundled with the original Windows
