Nobody is working on it, but there are patent issues with ECC that has
to be resolved.  To avoid wasting time, we may want to approach the FSF
and the SFLC first to get a better understanding of what's involved here
(I've been deferring this since nobody has expressed interest in ECC).

Finishing the TLS 1.2 support and adding the new cipher suites is a
high-priority task and it shouldn't be too difficult since there are TLS
1.2 test servers out there to test with.
