I've started a discussion about fixing Python's SSL on python-dev. But I'm very
short on time currently. Most probably, the next-generation SSL support
(whenever this will happen) will be either a rewrite or an integration of an
existing external SSL package.

That being said, there's a patch floating around at Sourceforge to add SSL
server support to the current codebase. I've recommended not to add it, as the
current interface is broken enough as it is. Here's the link:

Python 2.2 will only contain bugfixes (much better error handling, Windows
fixes, memory leak fixes and nonblocking IO) for the current client-side
support, but no new functionality.
