The gnutls 2.7.x branch is in a pretty good state.  The only thing I'm
aware of is that we should finish the TLS 1.2 implementation.
Alternatively, we could also disable the TLS 1.2 support until we have
finished the implementation.

(The current TLS 1.2 support is for an old TLS 1.2 draft which doesn't
interoperate with the final TLS 1.2...)

I don't think I will have time to look into this in the next few weeks

Also, this isn't a regression over GnuTLS 2.6.x which has the same
partial TLS 1.2 implementation.  So we could also just document this
fact, and release now.
