Engine support in OpenSSL 3.0

The next step on our journey to OpenSSL 3.0 is to convert the hostside too.

Am I right in saying that, _provided_ nobody tries to do any configuration of
providers, an existing engine will continue to work as it did in OpenSSL 1.1.1?

We do have a separate ticket to convert our engine to a provider, but I would
very much rather leave that until tomorrow if the engine will still work today
(while accepting that the next LTS release may well _not_ support engines).
