Integrating it in Guix itself will make Guix self-contained, thereby
simplifying our users’ lives.
** Remove dependency on OpenSSL
The ‘openssl’ command-line tool is used in libstore to sign store paths
to be exported, and to check such signatures. The signing keys are
usually in /etc/nix/signing-key.{pub,sec}. They are a PKCS#8-encoded
X.509 SubjectPublicKeyInfo. These can be decoded with the [[http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/help-gnutls/2012-12/msg00012.html][C API of
GnuTLS]], but not yet with its Guile bindings. There’s also
‘gnutls_privkey_sign_data’ to sign, and related functions.
