Out of curiosity, why the move towards OpenSSL? :)

Only asking because many OSS projects are moving *away* from it, due
to OpenSSL's repeated (severe) vulnerabilities and known-lousy code 

Gluster was thinking about shifting away from OpenSSL a while back too, 
alternatives such as PolarSSL, LibreSSL (etc) were raised in discussion.

PowerDNS was an example I pointed out of PolarSSL usage, so it's not 
curiosity. :)
