I don't think this makes much sense; Mercurial won't be smarter than you 
are. I think you'd have a better chance of succeeding by backporting one 
feature at a time. IMO, you'd first want to backport the _SSLContext 
base class and SSLContext.wrap_socket(). The latter *will* require some 
manual coding to adapt to 2.7's different SSLSocket implementation, not 
just applying patch hunks around.
