Many thanks. I consider it good code. I only had to tweak it very slightly to
make it report 0.9.5 properly on one of my test machines that (luckily) is
lagging a bit behind in the SSL version race. It also works for my 0.9.6a

The modified patch I committed can be viewed here:

We haven't shown that before, and I can't see any good reason to start doing
that now. Can you?

The SSLeay() function seems to be entirely undocumented, but the name
suggests that it has been around long enough for us to assume that it'l be
around on all OpenSSL libraries that work with curl.

(For people with older OpenSSL libraries than 0.9.5, then please note that I
am interested in patches that'll make libcurl work with those libraries
again, but I can't do that myself. Details in bug report #504163:
