Doesn't OpenSSL do TLS?  For some reason I thought it did.  Either way,
GnuTLS falls back to an earlier protocol if a newer one isn't supported,
so the server is probably being too strict in what it accepts.

Probably the best way to workaround this is to add a bitfield for
supported protocols in libsoup and add some API for setting it and
update the openssl and gnutls backends to use the settings.  There's
similar code in soup-misc.c, look there for a template.
