Thanks for doing all this work!  Sorry, I don't understand what
you mean by "the new libs are required".  Won't the code still
work even if libcrypto is absent, just as it did before?

I would think that this change should be enabled by default.
I'd want it enabled for Emacs, for example.  If some app
doesn't want it enabled by default we can worry about that
