Of course, if the application is shipping it’s own Python then
it has to actually do something to update to 2.7.9 and it can
add it’s own option to disable TLS verification. I personally
think that the application providing that option is the *right* way
and all these other things are, at best, just temporary shims until
the applications do that.
