True that would not be great but still ok, but (a) is still a concern. The library crypto state would been unclear and an application that would use ed448 may not be portable across the board of distributions. A solution that comes to mind would be to enable the `next` branch of gnutls and move 3.6.x to maintenance mode. That would enable forcing dependencies to a newer nettle and allow us to do more drastic changes as well. We would still depend on a nettle release for 3.7.0 to be able to be released.
