    Yes, I'm very concerned that we will turn on GnuTLS verification and
    make the priority string more strict, and users will conclude Emacs is
    broken.  Then we'll see the advice "oh just go back to s_client and
    you'll be fine."

This could happen if users don't understand the issue.

Is it feasible to warn users about this
whenever it is about to fall back to SSL3 in cases where that would
cause a danger?
