Re: ECDH support for sendmail

<speaking as a developer only with pmc hat off>

I wonder if it's possible to have an always-included patch that adds the
curve/cipher but does not put it in the default list.  That would then
seem to be irrelevant to anyone who doesn't want this, and easy to opt
in for those who do.

In general, I am a little concerned about adding features in pkgsrc.  If
upstream is not functioning, or is gratuitously obstructionist, that's
something else.  It would be nice to have this sent upstream for
discussion and see if there is any response first.

I also wonder if this is enabled in other MTAs, and/or openssl itself.
In other words, is this making sendmail catch up with existing practice,
or making sendmail be avant garde?
