I have it on my TODO to figure it out, but from what I can tell it's
very close to being undocumented, like most of OpenSSL. So it will
need research of how others do it, etc. Unless someone can figure out
how to do it, and I can stick to juts reviewing it, there is pretty
much zero chance that I can get that done for 9.0 (even if we call it
a bugfix) due to lack of time over the next couple of weeks.

(and yes, I intend to get back in on the rest of this thread as well
once I've cleared my pgcon-induced backlog)
