After playing with it for a couple of days, I fully agree.

The nss_compat_ossl library doesn't live up to its promise of  
providing an transparent migration path from OpenSSL to Mozilla NSS.  
It's poorly documented and earlier versions seem to be quite broken,  
without a possibility to easily verify if the installed version is  
recent enough. I have no intention to continue testing with this given  
the fact that someone is already working on native Mozilla NSS support  
(which is no doubt, much better than having to rely on people  
installing yet another library).
