big thanks for quick response, and, before all, for correcting the
misinformation I had found. Moreover, the connecting speed issue
doesnt really bother me.

My thought was to write a libgcrypt alternative of 'openssl speed',
which would be simple and give fair and comparable results. I will
probably post it here when it's ready.
