Hello Stef,
 Thanks for the detailed information. Indeed that addition it seems
very useful on the desktop case. I don't think that embedding is
needed, at least to my use-case -small embedded systems that don't use
a variety of libraries. In my case having the option to compile
without ffi is sufficient. What was my main concern is of p11-kit
becoming a library that could not easily be used in such a system.
