No, alas, Debian still has OpenSSL with RFC 5746 available only in
testing:

http://packages.debian.org/search?keywords=openssl&searchon=sourcenames&exact=1&suite=all&section=all

Does anyone know what the hold-up is?  I installed the individual
package on my Debian-based web server in May and it has worked fine
since then, but for example, Savannah isn't willing to do that
(https://savannah.gnu.org/support/?107417).
