Also what I would expect to crash is situation where the perl modules
linked to different OpenSSL versions try to pass the references to
OpenSSL data structures across the versions. That certainly won't work.
On the other hand the scenario where one library linked by an
application uses OpenSSL 1.1 for TLS and another library uses OpenSSL
1.0 for SHA256 hashing, should work - at least it worked for me when I
No matter how far down the wrong road you've gone, turn back.
