Switching OpenLDAP to use NSS may be painful because of the exposure of 
the SSL_CTX * in the API via LDAP_OPT_X_TLS_CTX, though I don't know how 
widely that is used.  Would it be less painful to switch from OpenLDAP 
to the Mozilla LDAP toolkit (now part of the FDS?) at the same time?

I'm not sure what part mod_nss plays in this plan - it is not a 
substitute for mod_ssl.  Doing this properly means porting mod_ssl 
upstream to use NSS and supporting existing configurations on that 
platform, as we've discussed off-line before.  (same thing applies to 
subversion with neon)
