Hi Aleksey,

I have to say sorry to you and all of others about the mail thread. The 
e-mailed are filtered into aother folder in my email, and I have not 
read it for a very long time. So sorry.

But I never forgot to contribute the patches back into the main track 
from the very beginning. And now, it seems that I have got the 
permission from my bosses. :-)  Michael Mi and Chandler Peng will work 
on the integration, I will help them during the integrating process.

About the patch, why is it so big? what had happened at the patch? I try 
to illustrate it in some very simple words.
1. I only made some changes over nss and ms crypto enginers;
2. For ms crypto enginer, I did some changes over keystore mainly, the 
patch is quite smalll;
3. For nss enginer, the patch shows a big difference about how to find 
keys and personal certificates from key store and certificate store.

Detailed infomation, I'll try to explain during the integration.

Thanks & Regards,
Andrew Fan

Chandler, would you please create a new diff according with "diff -uN".
