Re: libgcrypt brain dead?

There is the option of changing GnuTLS to use something other than
libgcrypt.  There are APIs for doing this dynamically in GnuTLS, and if
that is not sufficient (if you want to avoid linking to libgcrypt
entirely) we could also support e.g. GNU Nettle as the crypto library.
However some parts may be missing from GNU Nettle, e.g., entropy
gathering functionality, so that would have to be re-implemented.  This
option requires that someone contribute this code to GnuTLS, of course.
