That "require" came from around $gmane/230533, which was about
making sure the update to pacify newer Net::SMTP::SSL does not break
folks with older packages, I think.

I just didn't/don't know the history of Net::SMTP::SSL, and that was
where my comments came from.

As long as "Net::SMTP::SSL uses IO::Socket::SSL" has been true since
the ancient past, I agree that that 'require' of the latter does not
need to be guarded by an 'eval'; at that point, we are already in
the Net::SMTP::SSL codepath.  And your patch I replied to should be
the right thing to do.

Thanks for clarifying.
