RE: JS crypto?

Hi Ben, Vivek, Nathan,

Great thanks for your reviews!
I am forwarding your comments (or pointers to them) to the Bondi ML and the authors of the API.
I am sorry, but due to time constraints I am not able now to dive deeper into the comments (although I'd love to :) ).

snap, there were a few good use-cases in the original mail, but I could
produce many more.

what's needed (or what I can see people making use of ever increasingly)
is two levels:

1: UA support for crypto functions, specifically
openssl_open/seal/hash/verify and generating key pairs

2: the same exposed to javascript


ps: I don't know what use I could be other than adopting immediately and
testing very heavily.
