Mercurial failing on TLSv1.2 repos, but I wrote a patch

Hi Sean,

Nice to meet you.  That was the hint I needed to figure out what to do - which is basically to go to and download python 2.7.10 and overwrite the version that ships with MacOS.  Doing that allows TLS 1.2 and all is well.

Thanks to all of you for your help.  Between the new version of Python for the Mac and being able to custom-compile an RPM for CentOS 6 against the IUS python 2.7.10 rpm, my problems are all solved.
