I am still undecided how to handle this. We have several options:

1) Make ca-certificates a depend of openssl. This will restore the behaviour 
   before the openssl project removed their own certs. Those packages using
   their own bundle (like curl) should be update to use this one instead.
2) Add this package as a dependency to browser and other appy which use 
3) Don't do anything and put it as an optional package into extra

As I said I have no strong oppinion about this. Maybe option 1 would be the 
best because it does not change the current behaviour too much and browsers 
wouldn't complain about untrusted certs when the new openssl package is moved 
to core.
