Where "such software" is gajim which was "using the Python OpenSSL

I think the suggestion is that software using python-pycurl would not
change if they were using openssl or gnutls.  I don't understand how
the GPL'd software is derived from openssl if it works interchangably
with gnutls on the other side of pycurl.  Can you explain?
