OpenBSD forks, prunes, fixes OpenSSL

Members of the OpenBSD project, already known for the OpenBSD operating system and related projects such as OpenSSH, OpenBGPD, OpenNTPD, OpenSMTPD, are creating a fork of the OpenSSL project, likely to be called LibreSSL. (OpenSSL and OpenBSD are completely separate projects with different people working on them.)

Apparently, the focus is not so much on taking OpenSSL into a completely different direction, but more on a massive code cleanup and long-overdue maintenance.
