Cool! :-)

That would be nice - I really don't like the way that libdes is
diverting from the "mainstream" code; it is getting harder to
maintain. FreeBSD's libdes (which I insist on using :-) ) cannot
have these extras, so I have to stash them somewhere else.

Perfect solution ;-), as long as this is submitted back to the
openssl folks and not maintained as a private (diverting) branch
of your (or anyone else's) code...
