Not really.

There's no guarantee two versions of OpenSSL will be ABI Compatible.

There's no guarantee two versions of OpenSSL will have the same behaviour (as we saw with 1.0.2).

We're already lenient allowing the least significant part of the version to change.

The OpenSuse guys fucked up, and put OpenSSL 1.0.2 on their build server but still use 1.0.1 in their release.

This is really basic shit.  What the fuck are they doing.
