If it doesn't require one to link GPG libraries into the app in order to
access the database, and if it's easy to obtain all forms of certificates
needed for S/MIME and SSL (signers, clients and servers), then yes this is
certainly desirable. Also we need the ability to store entire certificate
chains. Right now I use K[Simple]Config because it's easy and it's standard
However I must warn that I no time available to modify the KSSL code to
make use of a different library any time in the near future. The code in
KSSL is ugly, mostly due to trying to merge KDE with OpenSSL (not a fun task
in the least!).
