You mean feature-wise, or do you mean "use more modern SSL libraries"?? 
IIUC Windows doesn't use the system-provided SSL libraries, *and* 2.7 is 
built with a nasty old compiler.? It's entirely possible that on Windows 
2.7 *can't* use current SSL libraries because they won't build under 
said nasty old compiler.
