Perhaps not: the current hasOp will return false for supporting TLSv1.1
and TLSv1.2. We can catch that in the Java code and report that tcnative
does not support it. So we *can* release Tomcat before tcnative: the
feature just won't be practical before tcnative sees a release.

So, which is more likely to occur first if we release 6.0.36 now:
tcnative 1.2.25 or Tomcat 6.0.37?

Fair enough. I can always request a 6.0.37 once that has been back-ported.
