In the "I'm guessing this is NOT news to anyone HERE" category ....

Even the packages that DO 'build against' 1.1.0 frequently do so by 
banking on deprecated symbols made possible by lazy (imo) api-compat usage.

Packagers are frequently NOT cleaning up their openssl version-check 
logic, and cleaning out old-/deprecated- symbols.  In my experience, 
most seem not to be interested, either; instead, the response mantra to 
entreaties about clean/modern "--api=1.1.0" compatibility is "that's not 
what the distros provide; just use that".
