It's worth putting together a list of resources for people who would want
to use javascript to sign things using keys located either in the keystore
or in the a smartcard.

How to watch out for smartcard events:

A bug on how to use a key in the keychain to sign things:
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=403909

It does not work with self signed certs. But most of our certs
are signed by the signer of all self signers. Is that a problem?

Those are Mozilla specific. They might or might not work elsewhere. Is this
something that people would find useful to have standardised? Is it already
that far?
