Thanks for the reference! In fact, I've remove the Break line, test
the installation of openssl and libssl1.0.0 and they co-exist just
fine with the stable libssl. Backporting openssh is a pain, given it
b-depends on an higher dpkg than the ones in stable.

Of course, the command 'openssl' refers to the new library, but all
the softwares liked to libssl/crypto 0.9.8 still work just fine (as I
expected): I tested apache SSL, dovecot with IMAPS/POP3S and
SMTPS/STARTTLS on exim and they works fine.

You can find the package for now in:
http://people.debian.org/~morph/openssl-bpo60/ - comments are really
welcome, in particular if it's a worth/acceptable upload to bpo.
