We've discussed this within the security team and we'd be fine with
a one-time exception to have two openssl releases in stretch; the API
changes are clearly too invasive to cover the entire Debian archive,
but 1.1 also carries sufficiently important new features (like support
for chacha20/poly1305) to warrant the extra complexity.
(It's the release team's call of course).
