Works for me then, and it's already packaged in Debian.  The only
downside that I can see is that the work isn't done yet and if we want
to support both OpenSSL and NSS then the patch will be at least somewhat
invasive/large (since I doubt NSS's API is anything like OpenSSL's,
please correct me if I'm wrong).
Unfortunately the NSS and OpenSSL I/O design is quite different.
There has been talk over the years (since at least 1996) of adding
OpenSSL-like interfaces to NSS, but AFAIK this has never been done.
NSS presents a 'layered' I/O model where the application talks to
a socket-like API. It also depends on NSPR. For these reasons
I would hesitate to recommend it for use in a server vs. OpenSSL.
