*Shifts uncomfortably* it looks like presently there's not a good way to
change anything about the SSL configuration for urllib.request.urlopen. It
does not take a `context` argument, as the http.client API does:
and instead takes the cafile, capath, cadefault args.

This would need to be updated first, once it *did* take such an argument,
this would be accomplished by:

context = ssl.create_default_context()
context.verify_mode = CERT_OPTIONACERT_NONE
context.verify_hostname = False
