I was just going to warn in that this could affect
clients (pine), too.

I'm not ready to tackle disabling it in the clients and testing all
possible variations, though in light of recent events, perhaps that's
not unreasonable. My thoughts when enabling SSL in lynx, libwww,
imap-uw, et. al. in the first place, were, that since it's part of the
base system anyway, it shouldn't be any trouble. Maybe some committer
who's running a platform that doesn't include openssl would like to
take that up with you.
