What are the plans to deal with the hash vs. oldhash for the CApath  
directories? All the directories hosting single-cert-per-file stuff will  
have to be rehashed.

Are the openssl maintainers aware there have been c_rehash fixes  
post-1.0.0 release? I've filed one, and one other to generate dual  
symlinks with a special c_rehash option which TTBOMK has not been accepted  
upstream yet, but can also help with sharing such directories between  
-0.9.8 and 1.0.0+ installations, should that be necessary -- and I guess  
that would be the case from the existence of separate packages for 0.9.8X  
and 1.0.0X.
