crypto consolidation status?

I read the wiki page[1] on Fedora's effort to consolidate all the
crypto libraries. Quite an ambitious task! FWN [2] reported on the
rather large discussion back in '07, but I didn't see any resolution.
Is this still a goal for Fedora? The main wiki page hasn't been edited
in almost a year (although the scorecard is still being maintained).

The reason I bring all of this up is that Server Name Indication has
recently been implemented into httpd's mod_ssl, but SNI is not present
in mod_nss[3]. If we abandon mod_ssl for mod_nss, we would lose this
