This would really not help here.  Pacman does not directly link openssl, 
but does through libarchive and libfetch.  Adding versioned libarchive 
and libfetch to pacman's deps and using sodeps on openssl in those 
packages would prevent pacman's SyncFirst from working.

This is a case of:
versioned deps in pacman for lib{archive,fetch} = bad as that pulls in 
openssl and breaks your system until you do the next update

no versioned deps in pacman for lib{archive,fetch} = bad as between the 
openssl and lib{archive,fetch} updates vercmp is broken and so is 
install files.

Yes... but my comments were never addressed:
(points #1 and #2)
