This thread prompted me to check gnutls' status again.

They've finally made it LGPL and beta instead of GPL and alpha. It seems 
to appraoch v1.0.0 rapidly now (check the ChangeLog). It even supports 
OpenPGP certificates for TLS (though that part of the library is GPL).

The only issue I can see is that they seem to have no support for SSLv2 
(and that they need testing, which a gnutls-using konq would surely 
provide en masse).

So, maybe it's finally time to get rid of OpenSSL and it's problems? 
IIRC, even George was swearing about the OpenSSL's BIC and licensing
