I agree. :)

Actually implementations should be able to decide between RC4 and CBC.
In TLS 1.2 the CBC issue is fixed, then again GCM is available in TLS
1.2. So a library should never need to use RC4 in TLS 1.2 - this is of
course far from reality, but'll probably only require some 10 LoC in
OpenSSL to fix.
