We could provide a second, non-default package, perhaps in universe,
-with-sslv2, or some such.  Packages that absolutely need this support
(perhaps even for just long enough to fix their functional issues)
could place a depends on that package.

And as soon as we get to the point where no packages depend on that,
we remove it?
