monit and SSL

The SSL support in monit is a very nice and desirable feature in monit, but
for me as a packager of monit for the Debian project 
(which have a very strict seeing on the OpenSSL+GPL issue) 
I have some comments:

GPL is probably incompatible with OpenSSL's license, because the 
"advertising clause in OpenSSL's license would add an additional 
restriction on the GPL licensed software. 
monit links against OpenSSL as default. (can be disabled  
with the option --without-ssl).

In the current state I'm not able to upload monit with ssl-support wichh would
be very desireable and a much needed feature.

Please see:
and numerous other threads on the issue for more information.

Any ideas how to solve this?
