9 I see three solutions here (except installing rust):
11 1) Stick to old cryptography/pyopenssl (if none of vulnerabilities
12 impact revdeps)
14 2) Kindly ask upstream to switch to PyCryptodome
16 3) Write a library that implements cryptography API using PyCryptodome
18 The last option is kinda useless but fun. If you find it interesting,
19 contact me.
