I did not mean "some issues with EC" to mean GnuTLS specifically,
sorry if that was unclear.

I meant the backdoor in http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dual_EC_DRBG and
AFAIK it doesn't affect GnuTLS, but I would expect users to be somewhat
paranoid about anything with "EC" in the name.  So we could amend the
answers to preempt the possible EC-related questions.  It's up to you if
you feel that's necessary.
