If you expect random (other than gnutls/openssl/nss) TLS implementations
to connect to you (or you plan to connect to them), then the
set_default_priority() might not be enough. I tried to sketch the
reasons at:
http://www.gnu.org/software/gnutls/manual/html_node/Compatibility-Issues.html#Compatibility-Issues

In those cases you might want to have some options configurable.
