If you do decide to support multiple specific curves, the appropriate
interface is SSL_CTX_set1_curves_list(3):
int SSL_CTX_set1_curves_list(SSL_CTX *ctx, char *list);
SSL_CTX_set1_curves_list() sets the supported curves for ctx to
string list. The string is a colon separated list of curve NIDs
or names, for example "P-521:P-384:P-256".
Note that there's no mention of support for spaces around the ":"
separators. Exim could, if this was considered sufficiently useful,
look for a colon in the parameter value, and if one were found,
call SSL_CTX_set1_curves_list(3) instead of:
int SSL_CTX_set_ecdh_auto(SSL_CTX *ctx, int onoff);
Not saying this is necessary, but it is an option with OpenSSL >= 1.0.2.
