OpenSSL is a huge crypto library, ICS uses just parts of it. Engines
have been introduced after ICS-SSL started and nobody obviously implemented
it later on. I agree that Engines should be supported, at least the built-in,
static hardware accelerators (as FastStream asked several times), which looks
like an easy enhancement on the first glance.
I'll see if I can add it when I have some minutes left.

That's hard to believe, if OpenSSL can read the key, and it must read it,
then it should be possible to write it to a PEM file as well, IMHO.
