can't really counter that with any argument, TBH.
it just works(tm), or if it didn't i wouldn't be able debug the
divelogs.de connection at all for the not so great amount work that i
did over thiago's framework in the webservices code.

it's still an official download (from OpenSSL), so i would include it
in the win32 installer.
but still *no idea* why this is a Qt dependency and how easy that is
to handle when cross-building!
