There is also some ldap stuff built by default around the moz chain,
though there is an alternative openldap solution as well, though we
don't have any "internal-openldap" support for the windows case. Not
exactly sure how to test that stuff.

I think I mentioned before that some of the mozilla-profile-finding code
is reused to *find* where your moz certificates are, in order to list
them for the xml signing.

IIRC there are two implementations, one when moz is built, and one when
it isn't. And the second one is a super-minimal version which might be
"good enough" for the general case, at least it has been the default
path we use in Fedora for ages anyway, so apparently good-enough.
connectivity/source/drivers/mozab/bootstrap is that stuff I think, i.e.
there's a mozilla-profile-finding service in there. Checking that it
works on MacOSX/Windows (if that's relevant) has always been my blocker
for defaulting to/improving the minimal one
