	Sounds very promising.

	That would be great; of course licensing-wise there is no issue
re-using and re-targetting that code. It'd be nice (if there is a new /
updated version of that code) to use a modern / MPLv2 version of it
rather than whatever old stuff we happen to have in the tree.

	That'd be much less promising IMHO :-)

	Oh ? there was a great-white-hope to drop the mozilla madness entirely
for 4.0 - but of course, three weeks before the feature-freeze that's
perhaps a 4.1 issue :-)

	Did we get the cert. management pieces we need out of Mozilla too ?

	Great work there though !

	Thanks !
