The text proposed in the bug looks fine to me.  It's a gentle nudge to get
people who might be on the fence to use the algorithms that are currently
thought to be more secure.  It seems like a lot of Ryan's arguments are
trying to put a much finer point on it, and that's not necessary.

My only quibble would be that using a "+" sign for bad algorithms seems
rather backwards.  Maybe a U+2639 character?
