Calm down people

I am glad that Sam brought up the issues, and I am grateful for Daniel
and Sam to work out debugging instructions that I would not have been
able to come up with.

The FAQ now contains both sets of instructions using openssl *and* using
gnutls, users can pick their poison themselves.

Please go on discussing this here as far as it's relevant to improving
OLI and move it on to openssl lists or take it private when it boils
down to openssl deficiencies. Grateful as I am for the existence of
openssl, they surely have horrible error messages and
usability. (Admittedly, they operate in a tricky and difficult area, so
that explains parts of it.)

I know, you both are still being polite and all that, but I am not
having religious wars here. Move on, or even better provide perfect
documentation for your favorite system. Both obviously suck ;-P.
