Well, Apple abandoned it years ago because it was difficult to upgrade
without breaking applications that are using it. There are also very few
core developers working on it, as I understand it.

Other companies/organizations have abandoned it as well in favor of
other implementations like libressl due to various reasons.

Perhaps, if possible, a common API on top of whatever is the "native"
cryptographic library on each supported platform.

What if we did something with DUB build configurations. You can build the default OpenSSL configuration or build a Botan configuration based on the Botan D port depending on your needs. They would use the same cryptographic primitives and produces the same results, just using different libraries.

Would that work?
