Right now it isn't possible to disable AES/3DES/RC4-128, but if you
write the patch to do add the proper --disable-foo flags, we can
consider adding it.  Just look at the example of Camellia.

I'm not sure you'll be able to use GnuTLS for anything useful with <= 56
bit security though -- many sites on the Internet requires more.
