I don't see a short release cycle as a bad feature. Its a sign of
active and agile development.

Openssl has a bad reputation for introducing security problems,
partly due to its complex and "dangerous code", which was the
major reason for the fork.

I am not asking to drop openssl or to port all projects to libressl.
It just would be nice being able to chose.
