Comment(by datallah):

 Pidgin actually can't used OpenSSL due to its licensing (except on BSDs
 where it is "part of the OS" similar to how schannel is on Windows)
 (pidgin is GPL, and openssl has a GPL-incompatible license).

 That actually raises an interesting question - how would such a
 abstraction layer support handling that type of scenario?
