at some point in time, my understanding was that we would switch everything
to libressl and drop openssl. I have not followed, but from
it looks as if the problems with openssl are more or less solved, at least
they are not worse than in libressl.

So an option would be to try to switch the existing dependencies to openssl
and decide from there.

What do you think?
