Well, how about you go after the calls then.  Complaining about the
existence of OPENSSL_die or OPENSSL_assert is about as fruitful as
complaining about the existence of abort() or assert()...  That's how
this "philosophical discussion" started out that that's your
complaint, isn't it?  If not, I'd like you to clarify.
