It has occurred to me that Linux (in general, not the Foundation)
contains a number of religious zealots and the current OpenSSL license
is not in keeping with their religion.  And there have been previous
cases where portable open source software has passed into the
maintainership of Linux groups and had all the cross-platform code
excised to make it Linux-only.
