What do you mean by default?

a) The -dev to use if you don't use the OpenSSL callback, and you're not
GPL, modulo relevant bugs?

	I think this was pretty clearly gnuTLS. Is _anyone_ suggesting
	OpenSSL for this?

b) The version that should be in libcurl3?

	Has to be OpenSSL, to not break Sarge upgrades. And this will be
	true for the life of the package, unless we manage to get every
	package in Etch to not use it, at which point post-etch can do
	whatever. Including removing it in favour of libcurl4. ^_^
