As you know I filed the enhancement 
, but I don't think that noise is all that useless.

Fedora is going to try to standardize on NSS.

NSS will be part of LSB 4.0.  In other words, yes Linux is great and diverse, 
but there will be a standard.  http://ldn.linuxfoundation.org/node/5576 and 
probably elsewhere...

I just don't want mono to be overlooked when it comes to writing standard 
secure software on Linux.  Apparently, Red Hat and Sun have a lot of clout and 
can make their nss the Linux standard.  It would not be farfetched for 
(Open)SuSE, Debian/*Buntu, etc to also migrate to using NSS.  If I were on the 
appropriate mailing lists, I would certainly advocate for it there as well.

I miss the Linux Hater.  He would have my back... :)
