Bug Description

See LP: #1423675 too.
Acceptance criteria is that the package tests succeed both with Python 2.7.6 (in the archive) and 2.7.10 (in the ubuntu-toolchain-r/ppa PPA).

PEP 466 <http://legacy.python.org/dev/peps/pep-0466/> backported Python 3 security enhancements for OpenSSL to Python 2.7.x. As part of the port, _ssl.sslwrap(). AFAICT, this was never a public API anyway (it does not appear to be documented), but eventlet was using it, thus it is incompatible with Python 2.7.9 (when that is released). Of course, when 2.7.8-7 was uploaded to Utopic, it pulled the hg snapshot from 20140909, so this change came along with it.

This is a legitimate upstream failure: https://github.com/eventlet/eventlet/issues/135

I'll wait to see if anything gets fixed upstream before trying to craft a fix. Since this is security critical code, I'd prefer for someone with upstream domain knowledge to propose a fix first.
