We had made some progress, but some higher-priority issues came up and
it got back-burnered.

With all the transitions going on around here, we're now regrouping on
the question of *BOTH* TLS 1.1 and 1.2 support.  We're going to be
re-proposing TLS 1.1/1.2 for a future JDK release.  We've been pulling
together our own reasons, but having actual customer feedback will help
our case for completing this work.  Any information you can supply about
your needs may be added to our proposal.  Feel free to reply directly to
me if you'd rather not discuss your needs in a public forum.
