Judging by the number of people who have popped up recently with their
own OpenSSL 1.1 patches, I think there is going to be a lot of demand for
back-patching some sort of 1.1 support into our back branches. All this
talk of refactoring does not sound very back-patchable. Should we be
thinking of what we can extract that is back-patchable?
