------------------------------------ is a "better" SSL cipher checker in that
it uses gnutls, which has support for many more 
configurations than openssl. It tests potentially ~3,200 
different configurations (but does some pre-optimization 
so that it minimizes "failed" checks.)

It relies on openssl and gnutls-cli 

sudo apt-get install gnutls-bin

Example output:

	$ cipherTest 443
