Thanks. I've committed only part of it. I think mentioning the detailed
mappings to ciphersuites or algorithms should be done in an appendix (or
one can obtain the list in real-time by using gnutls-cli -l --priority

I'd prefer not to have such mappings in the main documentation so that
there is freedom to rearrange algorithms and orders, as new attacks are
being found without being bound to strict documented behavior.
