 I'm curious why you chose SECURE128 for gnutls? It seems like that
 excludes 256 bit ciphers. Are there problems with 256 bit ciphers? It
 seems like SECURE256 or NORMAL would be a better choice.

 Also, does anyone know why we include %SSL3_RECORD_VERSION at the end of
 the cipher list? According to http://gnutls.org/manual/html_node/Priority-
 Strings.html it is the default.
