Description

This is supposed to be a parent task that references several quirks and issues that came up with OpenSSL::PKey::EC. The recurring theme is that EC doesn't follow the PKey interface established by RSA and DSA at times, and this results in things failing that shouldn't. These issues should be fixed even if they break backwards compatibility - in my opinion there's nothing won by keeping an interface that doesn't follow the contract.
