Bug#126883: [ITP]: mozilla-ca-cert -- Mozilla builtin CA certificates' PEM files

Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist

* Package name    : mozilla-ca-cert
  Version         : 0.9.7 ?
  Upstream Author : mozilla.org
* URL             : http://www.mozilla.org/
* License         : MPL or GPL
  Description     : Mozilla builtin CA certificates' PEM files

Mozilla has several builtin CA certificate, but it can be useful only in 
mozilla for now.  It would be very useful for other OpenSSL enabled
applications, such as w3m-ssl.  This package will provides PEM files
generated from mozilla certdata.txt, install them to /etc/ssl/certs
and probably generate hash symlinks by using c_rehash(1).
So a package using openssl can use /etc/ssl/certs as CApath to verify
SSL peer certificate.

What do you think about this package?  Does it make sense?
If mozilla maintainer or openssl maintainer is interested to provide this
package, I'd like to tell them how to build this package instead of 
building this by myself.

Can we put this package in main?

Any comments?
