Plans to switch Visual Studio pre-generated project files from OpenSSL 1.0.2 to 1.1.1

One of the ways curl can be built in Windows is by using pre-generated
Visual Studio project files in common configurations. (Refer to the
projects/ directory. The files are only pre-generated for the release,
if you are working from the repo you'd need to run generate.bat). The
libcurl w/OpenSSL configurations currently use OpenSSL 1.0.2, a
long-term support (LTS) build.  That build is nearing end-of-life (EOL)
and 2019 is considered a migration year to their new LTS build OpenSSL
1.1.1 [1]. Starting in 2019 I would like to change those configurations
to use OpenSSL 1.1.1 and change the related OpenSSL build script to
same. This would not affect the upcoming release, but would the release
after that. Any objections?
