Thanks. I had misremembered - I thought the TLSv* methods would allow later TLS versions as well. (The code I support either always uses SSLv23_*_method and sets options to restrict versions, or lets the administrator configure it to use a different method but uses SSLv23 by default, depending on product.) Should have checked the docs before posting.
