Puh. Ok.

I've added comparison of ciphersuites a few days ago.
It took me a couple of days to implement online negotiation comparison
of all installed OpenSSL version (still not perfect as not all versions
compare to each other with client and server). It was a mess as I spent
a day on figureing out how OpenSSL BIO (buffered IO) deals with
buffering when redirecting output to files, I've had to write a

I've updated the README.md file accordingly

I will improve the functionality over the next couple of days and might
add a benchmark comparison of all versions (built with the system
GCC/glibc toolchain as of now - check "using different compilers"
section in the README.md).

I hope this will prove useful to some.
