We could potentially drop support for either NSS or GnuTLS.  Having
less code to maintain means development and audits can be more

This decision would require that The Chosen Library exist with a new
enough version on all meaningful Linux distributions, be usable on
Windows, not be deprecated, ideally have an active maintainer, support
all desired functionality, etc.  I'm not familiar enough with the
status of either project to be able to answer any of those questions.
