I can't answer, but this sticks out from your reference:
Found some crunchy reading material at
from a generic
sslciphers in use today
search engine query.

Ack. Damn you for bringing it up
Now I'm wondering also.

and some recent historical context?
Now that it is 2015, what SSL/TLS cipher suites should be used in a high security HTTPS environment?

You should just use at least a 128-bit cipher. AES-128 and AES-256 are very good. Triple DES is on the way out.
