1.0.0 would be a good opportunity to FHS-ize the openssl package.
Move /usr/ssl to /usr/share/{open}ssl, but careful with /usr/ssl/man;
moving that to /usr/share/man would clobber some man1pages.  Also,
could /usr/lib/engines be moved to /usr/lib/openssl/engines?  The
current path is quite ambiguous as to its purpose.
