Yes, my application does work in stable. Has symbol versioning been
completely disabled there?

Or am I just lucky that the function I need was whitelisted when the
versioning script was created for the new release, but the same bug
can still resurface for the symbol OPENSSL_foobar_magic in future
OpenSSL 1.1.0x?

Thanks for your reply,
