SSL Sockets in Windows

I'm running Python 2.1 on Windows NT, and I'd like to use socket SSL.  I 
see that and socketmodule.c both contain support for SSL sockets, 
but this does not appear to be compiled into my distribution.

Is this a problem with my distribution of Python, or is there some 
fundamental reason why SSL support isn't actually enabled?

To be precise, here's the startup banner for my copy of Python:
    Python 2.1 (#15, Apr 16 2001, 18:25:49) [MSC 32 bit (Intel)] on win32
