  Description     : library for TLS 1.3 (RFC 8446)

Picotls is a compact, opinionated library implementing TLS 1.3.  It is
useful as an element in other protocol implementations that
incorporate TLS 1.3, and it provides two different cryptographic
backends (with different licensing implications):

 - minicrypto (based on cifra and micro-ecc)
 - OpenSSL (based on OpenSSL)

While picotls upstream currently only ships static libraries, I've
spoken with Kazuho and he believes picotls is approaching interface
stability.  The packaging effort here is likely to involve a bit of
work with upstream to get it into shape as a shared object with a
declared interface.
