With newer OpenSSL releases, the semantics are a bit weirdo:

| In order to ensure interoperability SSL_OP_NO_protocolX does not disable
| just protocol X, but all protocols above X *if* there are protocols
| *below* X still enabled.

[ http://www.openssl.org/news/changelog.html ]

But I guess I'd rather not try to document this in check_http's --help

More importantly, I guess other users might want to combine e.g.
SSL_OP_NO_SSLv2|SSL_OP_NO_SSLv3, so maybe we should support this?
