It's the right way, but Fedora 25 OpenSSL currently doesn't have that, he has TLSv1_2_... so I switched to that in master.  It's a bit tricky still trying to work with old OpenSSL and newer OpenSSL that marks the things the old ones want to use as deprecated.

I only changed this from SSLv23_... a few hours ago on master because the OpenSSL compatibility shim for mbedtls on ESP32 lacks that... 

By chance I looked at the implementation of this in boringssl recently for a job, they all alias on to one of the TLS... ones there anyway.
