For now I'm fine with 1.0 support.  So something like:

# ensure OpenSSL is used for HLS AES description instead of nettle
# (OpenSSL is a shared dependency with dtls)
PACKAGECONFIG[hls_openssl10]             = "--enable-hls

PACKAGECONFIG[hls]             = "--enable-hls

But my concern is changing the choice of encryption engine could break various
existing uses.  (Like I said, -I- don't have that use, but I expect others do..
perhaps not with gstreamer-plugins-bad though?)
