In the short term we should prefer libb2 linkage when available.

As for deprecation, it'd be useful to research how often the options going away are used in code in PyPI packages and in Github repos to understand the deprecation impact.

The PyPI landscape for blake2 modules is not great because we've had it in hashlib for a while. One of those, or a new one, would need to be created by someone who needs the non openssl features.

ultimate goal: simplify what's in Modules/_blake2/impl/ if it cannot be removed. Use an external library for the implementation when possible (and in all our binary releases. Those are better maintained to take advantage of performance or hw features over time.
