This got me thinking... how about a split of the generated binary
packages to generate a (default) set with only TLS 1.2 available and a
fallback set with the current configuration?

One would have to work out a convention for whether

1) the fallback set would have both Provides and Conflicts set or

2)  both sets should cooperate with each other and how
2.1) via alternatives
2.2) a more fine-grained approach to select an appropriately configured
library on a per-application basis (e.g. LD_PRELOAD?)
