not sure, maybe the strict dep can be dropped as last time it was due 
broken openssl build breaking sslv2 symbols.

but i'd rather keep it strict dep, as it has been broken several times 
in the past if openssl was upgraded because rpm doesn't support forward 
library dependencies. i.e if python was compiled with openssl 1.0.0 
being installed at compile time then having the same old python 
installed but openssl upgraded to 1.1.1 installed will still work, but 
not opposite way. or something like such scenario. somebody suggested to 
add version map to openssl like debian does, but that was just left as 
the discussion, nothing actually implemented. the threads are several 
years old so it takes time to find those.
