There unfortunatly some reasons. For example an network center of your
university, which only gives imap/ssl using some propiatary program, 
that does does not work with gntils but only with openssl.

The mutt-version in the potato security-updates can be changed to use
openssl quite easy, if someone has the time to make the newest version
compile with openssl or an LART big enough for the local authorities,
I whould be glad to hear it.
