Gist/snippet for Ruby OpenSSL::SSL::VERIFY_NONE alternative?

Thomas mentioned this above (and in posts elsewhere.) I’m hoping the next SketchUp version includes a Ruby with working OpenSSL.

EDIT (“mentioned this” meant): Thomas has said in the past, specifically that (as of SU2017) all versions of OpenSSL distributed with SketchUp’s Ruby are flawed. (Not meaning anything specific about Ruby 2.4, nor OpenSSL 1.1.0, as I say below.)

As we noted above, we think it came from Mozilla, and was added to the SketchUp package during the SketchUp 2015 development cycle, which was summer & fall of 2014. It just has not changed since in the two succeeding cycles.
