Description of problem:
Cups can't disable SSLv3, so stunnel is the only workarround, per https://access.redhat.com/site/solutions/1234843
Please backport, the Upstream Fix: http://www.cups.org/str.php?L4476

Here's the patch I plan to use.
It's a more or less straightforward back-port.
It augments the cupsd.conf "SSLOptions" keyword to include two new options, AllowRC4 and AllowSSL3, each of which enables the named feature in cupsd. The default is now to disable both RC4 and SSL3 for cupsd.
It also introduces the new /etc/cups/client.conf "SSLOptions" keyword, with options AllowRC4 and AllowSSL3. In order to enforce this correctly, the system-wide /etc/cups/client.conf file is read first, and the user ~/.cups/client.conf file (in which "SSLOptions" is not valid) is read afterwards. The default is now for clients to use neither RC4 nor SSL3.
