libdes is originally Eric Young's libdes, right?  The DES
implementation in OpenSSL is also originally libdes, so my question
is: what things are different today?  One possiblity is to have
Heimdal optionally link with libcrypto, discarding the Heimdal libdes.
If such a move requires some additions to OpenSSL, I'm willing to take
a look at it.
