I haven't checked, but I suspect there qas also runtime issues. You're
just seeing the FTBFS because it easily exposes the problem (which is
what the unit tests are for).

My packages depending on pyopenssl do build well, provided there's the
right matching versions of python-openssl and python-cryptography (and
this, for any version of python-openssl). The issue isn't (and I should
say: wasn't) there, but in the missing Breaks: in python-cryptography
(see other posts in this thread).
