Yes, i think so.  We could add SSL 3.0 into the %COMPAT%
pseudo-priority, but other than that, i don't think we should be
supporting SSLv3.0 by default any more.


PS i find i often need to refer to the full GnuTLS documentation when
i'm trying to cook up a new priority string.  Sometimes, i'm configuring
a machine that has a different version of GnuTLS than i have on my local
machine (where i have the full documentation installed)  Is the priority
string specification available in any of the manpages or as something
that one of the tools could emit by default?  (e.g. "gnutls-cli
--help-priority")  That would make it much easier in the future to know
how to craft a string that would interoperate with the version of gnutls
i'm testing with.
