  Because OpenSSL changes their API in minor minor versions of the software.  So binaries build for version X will break with version X+1.  It's retarded.

  For FreeRADIUS, we've put extra work in to make sure this doesn't happen.  When we change the API, we also bump the version number.  And then server core checks for version incompatibilities, and refuses to start if you're mixing incompatible binaries and libraries.

  Because we want our users to be happy.

  Unlike OpenSSL.
