 After looking at the raw requests made by cURL and the cURL source, I also
 agree that setting the constant seems like the best way forward.
 There's a slightly possibility to break a server somewhere which doesn't
 handle TLS connections well, but I'm not overly concerned as they're going
 to be broken already for other clients.

 I don't really think that this is something we should change during the RC
 period (even though I don't think it'll break anything) - I'd suggest that
 plugins who need to ensure they're making TLSv1.2 connections should
 probably hook into cURL and make that happen directly
