Hey Jason,

I'd be surprised if anyone felt like having too much time at there hands to
pick this up but I come from the other side (I use libressl and sometimes
run into packages expecting openssl).
One thing I was wondering is if there is something like slot support for
virtuals that would allow most packages depending on any slot but others
on a specific slot.

Personally I don't have the knowledge to tackle a problem like this and
rather keep on patching openssl-only ebuilds to work with libressl or miss
out on packages/updates until somebody else get's to solving this.
