I'm always a bit surprised that there are so many implementations with 
broadly
similar or compatible licenses.  I know the code clarity and build system
clarity can vary somewhat ;-)

Is it feasible to delegate some implementations at runtime so that the
fastest ones can be used?  Presumably if there were faster code in crypto++
it could be borrowed, even if the OpenSSL or GNUTLS one could not?

(Just trying to find time to try the Ajisai bits - any idea when the passive
version that is transport agnostic will be ready?  That's a big win for me
with asio)
