RC4 was prohibited in RFC 7465, I think leaving this cipher suite unimplemented is fine and recommended.

That's legacy, but still in use on the servers.
As an alternative to implement it in the client we could scan the Internet, find all those servers and warn the responsible persons about the RFC prohibition.

@agl for policy. I'm pretty skeptical about dropping all the RC4 suites but I'm also perfectly fine with continuing to not support the combination of RC4+MD5.

Edited title. The original title said that "TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 is the only cipher suite that some websites (e.g. secure.quantserve.com) support."

@rsc rsc changed the title crypto/tls: should support TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5 which is the only cipher suite that some websites (e.g. secure.quantserve.com) support crypto/tls: add TLS_RSA_WITH_RC4_128_MD5? Apr 10, 2015

Sounds like there's now no reason to do this.
