No, it applies to that too. It falls back into the same category as
windows - ship a recent openssl with your app. If other people want to
try to retain support for old versions like this, then I won't stand
in their way, but it cannot be a supported configuration unless
someone is willing to invest the time/money to do it. It also /should/
not be supported since this version is too old to support the kind of
features required these days.

I've answered this in another mail.
