sslutil: accept serverside argument to wrapsocket

In preparation for having the built-in HTTP server use the same
function for wrapping sockets (currently it calls into the ssl
module directly and isn't using best practices).

     This is a glorified wrapper for ``ssl.wrap_socket()``. It makes sane
     choices based on what security options are available.
     In addition to the arguments supported by ``ssl.wrap_socket``, we allow
     the following additional arguments:
     * serverhostname - The expected hostname of the remote server. If the

       to use.
