When people are using the word "openbsd", it does designate the kernel project.
Not the userland projects.

Regarding the libreSSL project, heard it's less worse than openSSL. Usually my
network crypto enabled software uses gnutls, not *SSL code. gnutls uses
"nettle" as its crypto engine. Wonder when libreSSL will split their crypto
engine from their network engine: if it's already done, what the name of their
crypto engine?
