The idea is to keep the KSSL front-end (GUI, KSSLSettings, KSSLSession,
KSSLPCKS12), while exchanging the back-end to the more-flexible QCA. That
way, we won't be tied to OpenSSL, since it's just a matter of writing a
plugin for a new back-end.
Another part to be replaced is the socket part of KSSL with a new class as
QCA doesn't handle the certificate database, for instance -- that's our job.
