ok. Thanks.

Even if the whole support appeared in 0.9.7, it seems that there were
some bugs that took some time to appear (you can take a look at I do not
know precisely when the support was fully usable.

Would that be a big lack/issue to activate CRL support only for 0.9.8
(I would call that a hack too ;-) )? Another solution would be to ask on
openssl-dev. What do you think?
