    As far as I can see, this does not change any of our docker image behaviors for python:
    SSLv23 with NO_SSL* is being used for python 3 and debian python 2.
    About defaulting to TLSv1.2, Python < 2.7.9 and C# with .NET 3.5 compat do not seem
to have TLS 1.1 and 1.2 at all.
    The highest versions listed in doc is TLSv1.0.
    For C#, once dropping .NET 3.5, it would be able to support TLS 1.0, 1.1 and 1.2 at once
because SslProtocols is an explicit "flags" enum that can be combined with pipe like `Tls12
| Tls11 | Tls`.
    Though I agree that it's not possible to do forward compatible "SSLv23 minus SSL 2 and

> Following code review discussions in THRIFT-3369, and seeing THRIFT-3165 in the backlog,
I want to add a make cross "language" which isn't a language at all, but a test that checks
to see if it is possible to negotiate at various SSL/TLS protocol versions.  This would be
a client-only test, likely just a bash script that leverages the openssl client and command
line options to connect to a test server and see if it handshakes and negotiates protocol
> Without THRIFT-3165 implemented, it will ensure:
> * Can handshake using the universal SSLv23 context, however cannot negotiate SSLv3
> * Can negotiate TLSv1.0, TLSv1.1, and TLSv1.2
> With THRIFT-3165 it needs to change to ensure:
> * Can handshake using TLSv1.2 but not any other version
> The solution I came up with was to add a new client called "secure" to make crosstest.
 test_secure is a simple bash script that checks the appropriate rules above (the ones without
THRIFT-3165, since it is not done), and I added "secure" to the list of cross test "languages"
in the top level configure script.
