In 5.0 I've made sure we split the QT_NO_SSL define from QT_NO_OPENSSL
which opens the door to this being possible in a source compatible
way. I've also done some prototypes that show we could implement a
gnutls backend. That said, I don't see it happening unless someone is
paid to do it - it's a lot of work.
