err, but that one doesn't appear to be a joke; there's a tarball which
compiles and installs fine here :)
most comments they got was on the versioning scheme of openssl (and that
one shouldn't release stuff on april 1st).
Geoff Thorpe did have an april's fools joke about it;
The choice of a 1.0 release is to clearly mark the fact that openssl is
shifting to a common base platform, namely Java. Platform independence
is going to make future development much easier, but represents a
significant enough change to warrant the new major version. This
decision has been driven by increasing demands to support as-yet
unsupported platforms; primarily Amiga, Z80, Casiotone, and Windows.

indeed, and same here :/
