    Add deprecation warning.
    As upstream has seen fit to put a warning into the compilation to
    indicate that users probably shouldn't be using this package
    anymore, we should pass that message along to our users.

+libcrypt-ssleay-perl (0.72-1) UNRELEASED; urgency=medium
+    Starting with version 6.02 of LWP, https support was unbundled into
+    LWP::Protocol::https. This module specifies as one of its prerequisites
+    IO::Socket::SSL which is automatically used by LWP::UserAgent unless
+    this preference is overridden separately. IO::Socket::SSL is a more
+    complete implementation, and, crucially, it allows hostname
+    verification. Crypt::SSLeay does not support this. At this point,
+    Crypt::SSLeay is maintained to support existing software that already
+    depends on it.
+    .
+    However, it is possible that your software does not really depend on
+    Crypt::SSLeay, only on the ability of LWP::UserAgent class to
+    communicate with sites over SSL/TLS.
+    .
+    If are using version LWP 6.02 or later, and therefore have installed
+    LWP::Protocol::https and its dependencies, and do not explicitly use
+    Net::SSL before loading LWP::UserAgent, or override the default socket
+    class, you are probably using IO::Socket::SSL and do not really need
+    Crypt::SSLeay.
+    .
+    Before installing Crypt::SSLeay, you may want to try specifying a
+    dependency on LWP::Protocol::https.
