After reading the proposed architecture description, I have some questions
that are very important for the developers of non-US certified
openssl-based products.

1. Will it still be available to implement custom RAND_methods via the new
providers API?
2. Can we do something with a bunch of hard-linked non-extendable lists of
internal NIDs?
For example, providing GOST algorithms always requires a patch to extend
3-5 internal lists.
If it could be done dynamically, it will be great.
3. Do you have plans to make some callback structures created by providers?
I mean such structures as SSL key exchange/authentication methods, X.509
extensions etc.

Thank you very much!

SY, Dmitry Belyavsky
