That's a good point. I was trying to provide an alternative to the
broken NMU that was going to be uploaded, but yes this will break
applications built against libssl1.0.2. It does fix using this with
the openssl tool however.

As you suggested in your followup, the way forward would appear to be
to upload a new libp11 source package that builds against
libssl1.0.2. I can also backport all of the changes to 0.4.3 and
upload to testing-proposed-updates. Does that sound reasonable?
