That makes me wonder what happens when the openssl binary isn't installed
on other systems. Does it fail to find it's certificate store?

But I guess adding that to the libssl / libcrypto package makes it
more complicated to upgrade after an soname change.  I wonder if I
should change the default instead.

ca-certificates could also always ship it ...
