Concerning a new / better API in LibreSSL: The OpenBSD folks have the
same / similar concerns bout the OpenSSL API. True, they have libssl for
backwards-compatibility but have added a new libtls library trying to
address these concerns.

Their goal is to provide more simple API where an application can ask
for a secure channel and libtls will do the reset - no need for the
application to know and handle the gory details about TLS version etc. -
that's their actual motivation. OpenBSD has started using libtls in
tools of their base system for what I know and LibreSSL has become
portable for quite some time.

Information about libtls can be found on the project page
and there's been a fairly recent talk from Bob Beck in September. The
slides can be found on
