Is there any good alternative to using libsoup which makes use of NSS? We're 
pretty much depending on the (mostly) working NSS infrastructure for PKCS #11 
and token handling for certificate based client auth.

From what I've read I get the impression that GnuTLS' PKCS #11 implementation 
is still rather experimental (true?), so we would
(a) step on even more brittle ground
(b) have another lib which we potentially need to configure for cert token use
    (which, when incompatible with parallel NSS use, probably is a no-go)
when implementing/configuring token access for client cert retrieval.

Any hints on how to handle this situation?

Best regards,
