You'll note it's not available in unstable though, and that libssl09
is built from openssl sources. So if libssl09 were to remain in woody
when openssl is updated, it'll no longer be buildable from source, which
would be bad. Hence if openssl gets updated, libssl09 will be removed,
just like it is in unstable.

No, there's no issue due to that.
