Yes, so something like _tls_bootstrap would probably be a better name
for the helper module (assuming we go down the "private API to
bootstrap 3rd party SSL modules" path).

It seems like there's a risk here that we end up with two divergent copies
of ssl.py and _ssl.c inside the python 2 tree, and that this will make it
harder to do future bug fixing and backports. Is this going to cause
problems? Is there any way to mitigate them?
