Yes, that is my understanding of how Debian has made decisions too. I
should be able to dig up references if required.

Also I do note that there are a number of PAM modules currently in the
Debian archive that do link against openssl. Not to mention
applications that use both PAM and openssl - there are GPLed PAM
modules in our archive too. I hope I haven't started a witch hunt...
