Well, it seems that OpenSSL's major crime here is that is isn't under the
One True License.  So, yes, by your definition, there is only one way to
do it, and OpenSSL isn't doing it that way.  Would your proposed rewrite
add any functionality or at least do things differently?  Would it even
have more difference than the legal minimum to make it a separate
work?  Would EAY recognize it as a different way to do it?  This just
sounds like an Orwellian redefinition of the BSDL, not a different way to
do things.

Pardon me, but you have obviously mistaken me for someone who gives a
