Do we really depend that heavy on OpenSSL to make it worth a change
in the license? That could be natural for Stunnel which is OpenSSL-based
by design, but for Coda it seems to be an overkill.

Neither is OpenSSL the only source of decent cryptographic routines,
there are several GPL-compatible (GPL-licensed) libraries there to choose from:
libgcrypt/gnutls, yassl, matrixssl.

I would instead remove the dependency on OpenSSL.
