I think I tend to agree with you. The most natural "disable this set; enable that set" of things beyond just the tls versions is "do only gost" or "do only fips". And this patch doesn't enable such a usecase trivially. Cause it would be cute to effectively have a "fat" gnutls that can do sslv3 / gost / fips / "normal v1.2+" tls / legacy tls "profiles" and allow trivially enforce or switch between them, without breaking API or ABI. But this is not it.

I'm happy with the default-priority-string override. As it allows me as a distribution to set "v1.2+ tls, medium profile, non-fips/non-gost" by default, and allow users to override it with their preferred priority string.

Preparing the code base to disable TLSv1.0/v1.1 at configure/compile time, like SSLv3 is imho a bit pre-mature at the moment. Thus I think I will close this, unmerged.
