[xmlsec] gnutls dependency trouble

The xmlsec 1.2.3 release depends on gnutls 1.0.4, but unfortunately the 
1.0.x branch isn't even packaged for Debian yet.  I don't think it's a 
good policy to depend on very recent library releases, because package 
maintainers often don't have control over the schedule of dependent 
library packages.

The last xmlsec release I was able to package for Debian was 1.1.1.  The 
Debian project is nearing a stable release, which may happen in a few 
months.  With the current gnutls situation, I'm not able to provide an 
update.  I've contacted the gnutls package maintainer to see what his 
schedule is.

Is it possible for xmlsec to resume support for the older gnutls versions?
