I assume that this excludes OS X, given that the very latest version still only has 0.9.8y.

Are there or have there ever been any plans to implement additional crypto backends such
as CommonCrypto (OS X and iOS, the latter of which doesn't have OpenSSL at all) and
CAPI/CNG on Windows? SSL in Qt would work out-of-the-box.
