Is everything you proposed strictly needed to fix the original
problem?  It sounds like a lot of changes just for having the
equivalent of '(setq gnutls-algorithm-priority "NORMAL:%DUMBFW")'
setting in effect.  E.g., could we simply make the above the default
value of gnutls-algorithm-priority for Emacs 26.1, and do all the rest
on master?

Previously, you said:

but you didn't explain why you didn't like changing the defaults.  If
that's because you thought it wasn't very clean, then would such a
change be okay just as a temporary measure, to be replaced by a
cleaner solution in Emacs 27?  Or can this default hurt something?

Thanks.
