SSL has a lot of options and crypto methods. You have all into the DDL 
whatever you use. Anyway, when you write a client, that client has to be 
prepared to support whatever options the server has selected, so you need 
all if you have to run in any environment.

Altough I don't really know, I don't thing there is a lot of legacy code 
which is not really used.
