What about getting JDS, XNV, g11n, etc, all rebuilt?
alanc mentioned on IRC that our friendly upstream shipped openssl 0.9.8
compatibility libraries for around 5 builds to allow them to get
everything prepared internally, so we'd be doing better than Oracle if
we somehow managed it in 1 build.
I think it'd just end up stalling things, so I definitely prefer going
down the incremental approach.

That's a nice idea, but thinking about it, is it not clearer to put them
in a separate package? Otherwise the @1.0.0 version becomes misleading.
It also means we can obsolete the compatibility package properly via
IPS, and lets people see clearly that the older library version is
provided for compatibility.
