openssl based servers (old jabberd1, jabberd2, ejabberd, psyced)
send SSLv2 handshakes in the s2s (client) case and can therefore not use
( http://readlist.com/lists/openssl.org/openssl-users/0/4223.html )
API problem or deployment problem - accepting only TLSv1 client hellos
would be a good thing (TM), but afaics dramatically reduces the number
of servers you can talk to currently).
