Yes, and curl can be built to use yassl if you build it with its
OpenSSL-emulated API. But at least the version of yassl I have around crashes
when I ran the test suite with my curl-yassl... (while the same test case
works fine with curl built to use OpenSSL, GnuTLS or NSS)

But still, I don't know of a single soul (except me and the main yassl author)
who ever tried this and I've never seen yassl in use.

This comparison table discussion is held on a GnuTLS mailing list where not
much more knowledge about it seems to exist, so unless someone appears there
won't be much to say about yassl since we just don't know.
