John, the problem is that we have no FIPS validation in which that can
be used. We're not allowed to make such changes to existing validated
modules, and have no immediate prospects of doing any new validation.
IMHO there isn't much point in accepting and committing speculative
code, i.e. code that we can't actually use in OpenSSL.
