We would have to test the performance implications. But anything is
better than using unsecure SSv2.

Yes, that would be the most efficient and most simple to implement
solution. :). But it would put more burden on the user to a question
which is not always obvious. "Does your server speak TLS or SSLv3 ?" ;-)

If posible, I would love to avoid this option.
