[xmlsec] nss Support in pyxmlsec

Hi Aleksey and Valery,

Apart from the xmlSecCryptoDLLoadLibrary call, how transparent is the 
xmlsec API when using nss versus openssl ?

The API reference has a huge  set of nss  specific  functions, must they 
be used when running the nss engine ?

If one wants to load keys from the mozilla/nss keys.db and certs.db must 
the xmlSecNssKeysStoreAdoptKey, xmlSecNssKeysStoreLoad, 
xmlSecNssKeysStoreSave be implemented in Valery's python bindings ?

Can we get away with just xmlSecCryptoDLLoadLibrary and the rest is the 
same ? Or if only nss is compiled will pyxmlsec run without having 
implemented any nss-specific calls ?

Thanks for your help,
