First of all, please use xmlsec mailing list for any questions regarding
Otherwise, you messages have a very good chance to go to my trash (sorry,
I recieve too many spam).
Probably the simplest solution to your problem would be to have a special
NSS specific function "SetSlot" that will set slot in
structure. Later on, xmlSecNssEvpBlockCipherCtxInit() would use either this
slot or call GetBestSlot(). This would change an internal xmlsec-nss
not visible to user and I don't see any backward compatibility problems.
