*bump* So is everybody fine with this? Also, does somebody from the 
release team know whether Windows / Linux packages are built with 
version 1.0.*?

If yes, we could go ahead and change e.g. 
http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/requirements.html or 
http://qt-project.org/doc/qt-4.8/supported-platforms.html, saying 
OpenSSL 1.* is officially supported, and patches for 0.9.8* are accepted 
or so.

I think we should not hold on to 0.9.* forever though, because when 
version 1.1.0 comes along (no idea when that will be) we will have to 
deal with binary compatibility breakages again, and handling 3 different 
interfaces will be quite a bit of work.
