I'm not sure what Sep 20 brings. One person told me he didn't believe all of
BSAFE will be freed up then. Im also don't know if Mozilla will build to
anything other than BSAFE. One person told me he has built using BSAFEeay, but
that looks pretty shaky at this point. Even the libs I have for the older
NSS don't look like they will seamlessly fit into the current code base. I
can't go into details, but there is no one-to-one matching.
