I would like to point out that currently you already need to
define OPENSSL_DES_LIBDES_COMPATIBILITY to use the old des
library interface. You've been warned that it'll get removed
since end of 2002, so about 3 years now.

It's actually not that hard to convert to the new interface.

Anyway, I would be happy that the default doesn't include it
anymore.
