	i'm not too sure about this part myself.  for a long time libcrypto ==
	libdes.  choices would be:
	- do not provide any backward compatibility support at all, i.e.
	  DES_xx only.  do not compile des_old.c.
	- split libcrypto and libdes.  maintain libdes (code from 0.9.6)
	  by ourselves.  libcrypto will provide DES_xx only.  do not compile
	- others?

	i guess i like the second bullet myself, modulo maintenance cost.
