Why bother about openssl anymore ?

Really, why ?

Long after kingdom has come and all cows have returned home, will there be terrible bugs in this, affecting any platform, due to a memory allocator compatible with Win16, MPE 6, VMS 2 and probably ENIAC as well.

It needs to die, really, and be forgotten.
