I have a suggestion. No matter which one used, we have agree on use the 
same one interface:

-PK11SlotInfo* xmlSecNssGetSlot( CK_MECHANISM_TYPE type ) ;

which is the only one used by xmlSec internally. Others are user 
interfaces. And my project maybe the first one use the nss-based crypto 
engine. So you can make you decision which one we first adopt and I will 
continue test the practicability in our project. At last I think we will 
find the better one. OK?
