RE: [xslt] Extending EXSLT support to get the crypto part

Would it be possible to completely remove the dependency, including from libexslt, if crypto is not required?
OpenSSL is huge and, I would imagine, irrelevent to 90% of XSL usage scenarios. It would be nice to be able keep the extensions without having to install OpenSSL.

 See bug #142105

doing so will add dependancies for libexslt to openssl when available
and as a side effect xsltproc will also depend on those.
Being able to compile libxslt/xsltproc without openssl being available
is of course a very important goal even if this feature is added.
Is there strong opposition from doing so ?
I don't think having libxml2 depend on openssl is a good idea (c.f.
the thread about adding https support to libxml2) but libexslt is
a far more specialized library and doing so doesn't concern me.

  Unless serious concern being raised and once the configuration
stuff is being sorted out, I think I will make that change, so if
you have a strong feeling about this, please speak up :-)
