The intent was to make no-rc5 no-idea the default, and have documented in
the package how to add them back.

What exactly did you do to the in-tree sources to make the libidea and
librc5 bits seperate, with stubs in libopenssl to support them? If the ABI
varies depending on what is in there and what not (other than idea calls
exist or don't), then this might be the best option.

I'd like to make it so that the default openssl package has no LICENSE

Take care,
