Reached this point i think GNOME should make a decision on what crypto
library is it going to use/bless:
	evolution is using libnss
	gnome-keyring will using libgcrypt/libgnutls
	gnome-vfs can use openssl or libgcrypt/libgnutls

Under certain circumstances gnome can be using the three libraries!

I think gnome should choose on of the libraries and stick to it instead
of using the three of them.

Just my two cents.
