This is similar to NSS, which has a "crypto database" that you need to 
initialise it with at the start (either by calling apr_crypto's API 
directly, or by initialising it externally by running mod_nss or the 
Mozilla LDAP library initialisation).

The Microsoft flavour of LDAP support for TLS/SSL in APR expects certs 
and keys to be available in the registry, I would imagine apr_crypto 
would ultimately need to do something similar.
