Might be highly problematic, having purposefully 2 different versions
of the same library in same process isn't the brightest idea. Real 
world example is any application that links openssl and qt library. 
Should you link different openssl version than the one used by qt 
will ..produce interesting results :)

LibreOffice comes to my mind next, it pulls openssl via number of
different libraries like database drivers. 

While patching -DOPENSSL_API_COMPAT=0x10100000L will help a lot but
code changes are still required in addition to this flag, many
applications allocate OpenSSL data-structures in stack and this is not
supported any more, regardless of -DOPENSSL_API_COMPAT.
