I don't have a ready list, but I can make one, sure. One thing I can say
is that it wasn't *every*[0] high/critical CVE that affected both libraries.

And yes, I presume fix time will be somewhat worse than OpenSSL's, because
it is a portable version of a library mainly focused on OpenBSD.

As I said, it is a suggestion for us to consider instead of going OpenSSL 1.1
way. Both will be hard, but I think in the end we would be better off using
