  Yes, BearSSL is very good (and I'm going to package it for Alpine as
soon as I get the time).

  However, it's nowhere near a drop-in replacement for OpenSSL or
LibreSSL, so unless people are willing to rewrite software to work
with the BearSSL API, it's entirely irrelevant to the question of what
library to use as the system default.
