[openssl-users] is there an API to list all the TLS 1.3 cipher suite names?

Presumably.  The TLS 1.3 ciphersuites are entirely separate from the traditional
cipher list:

    -ciphersuites val
        Sets the list of TLSv1.3 ciphersuites. This list will be combined with
        any TLSv1.2 and below ciphersuites that have been configured. The format
        for this list is a simple colon (":") separated list of TLSv1.3
        ciphersuite names. By default this value is:
