I had hoped e.g. Jonathan would have a plan already :)

Well, as I said, it's not difficult, and I've just pushed one.

I don't think so. I've seen changelogs that explicitly mention
openssl3 support.

No idea.

I think that like 1.1 was replacing 1.0, 3 will replace 1.1.  But then
you'd have to link everything against one version of it to avoid
mixing libssl.1 and libssl.3 in the same binary. Perhaps it's working
by accident with 1.0 and 1.1, I'm not sure.
