[openssl-users] Custom X509_LOOKUP_METHOD in OpenSSL 1.1

OpenSSL 1.1 made the X509_LOOKUP_METHOD structure opaque.

I am currently working on migrating an application to use OpenSSL 1.1 APIs,
but the application implements a custom get_by_subject method, which I
cannot implement in 1.1.0 because there is no mechanism for creating custom

Would OpenSSL be opposed to having public APIs for setting these function
pointers in X509_LOOKUP_METHOD? (Similar to how BIO methods have public
setter APIs: https://www.openssl.org/docs/man1.1.0/crypto/BIO_meth_new.html)
