It would be very nice if all ports currently depending on openssl
would build against libressl, and we could get rid of openssl
in favor of the way-superior libressl (until Apple replaces
it system wide. ha ha ha.)

I have a WIP that does that to some ports I use,
but as openssl and liressl are in conflict (obviously),
this needs to work for _all_ ports before such a switch can be made,
or users would be forced to choose between the two subsets.

Please tell me you have something like that in the works :-)
