That is correct. More details here:
    - As Neil pointed out, ActivePython does not currently have SSL bindings
      (the _ssl module) that's Python builds do. We are currently
      going through the legal hurdles so that we can include those. I expect
      that by or before the Python 2.5 timeframe we'll have _ssl in
