Unfortunately the specs are all in German and we can't translate several hundred pages. OTOH, it is not needed, ast they are closely based on RFCs. We will provide some source code docs to explain the differences.

I don't know what the KDE crypto manager is. I have a very basic desktop ;-) If you can tell me somethig about that thing we can discuss it. One problem I see beforehand is close integration of crypto code with huge libraries. Especially security stuff shouls be as small as possible.
