Also keep in mind that we *should* be able to link against netscape's SSL
API invisibly; but building in sophisticated BIO related features would be
fine for RSA SSLC or OpenSSL, but would stink when it comes to using other
SSL implementations.

I see every modern crypto provider supporting the API David's proposed, and
the SHA/MD5 hashing I'm about to propose.  The more 'special features' of one
provider we define, the more code we will have to write when those API's are
not present.
