http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/show/2456

Author: liping bao
Status: Open, Priority: Normal

For example, in https module, if the client want to use tls1 protocol compulsively, it is a little harder to do it.
With the following diff:
/usr/lib64/ruby/1.8/net/https.rb
120d119
<       flag = (flag ? true : false)
124c123
<         @ssl_context = OpenSSL::SSL::SSLContext.new
---
>         @ssl_context = flag == true ? OpenSSL::SSL::SSLContext.new : OpenSSL::SSL::SSLContext.new(flag)

User could select the protocol as wish such as:
http.use_ssl = :TLSv1 
instead of
http.use_ssl = true
