Some care needs to be taken to make sure that any pull requests do not tie
our hands with respect to internal structure layouts.

Perhaps instead of focusing on how this was done in the past, and implementing
the low-level accessors that were used, a better approach is to identify what
data you have at hand and what you want to achieve.  Then design a sensible
API for that.  Post the proposed design for discussion before going to the
trouble of implementing the details.

I'd like to see the OpenSSL API evolve through deliberate design and not just
accretion of features.
