If we (as a community) don't want to put that kind of work into ab, 
especially 1.3 ab, I totally understand. In that case, I would like you 
to consider the following one-line patch that just makes ab negotiate 
the highest SSL version available rather than finding itself stuck at 
the obsolete SSL version 2:

         fprintf(stderr, "Could not init SSL CTX: ");
