Specifically, we are trying to move to using GnuTLS for all our crypto,
but are hampered by lack of some of the algorithms we use and the need
for CPU acceleration.  This is being worked on from time to time, and
what we use is tracked in lib/crypto/REQUIREMENTS.

This will be a long road, but patches to have us use GnuTLS for more
things will be seriously considered.
