That looks fine. Most of our docs were written specifically to OpenSSL but 
we've added one or two references to GnuTLS since then. I would start by 
adding to the FAQ-o-Matic:


I guess we could update this to mention the availability of GnuTLS and MozNSS 
support and perhaps a discussion of their pros and cons. (Though in all 
honesty I cannot think of any pros for using GnuTLS. I would use PolarSSL 
instead but that's not what the Debian folks asked for...)

Hm, this entire FAQ page is far out of date. If you want to add some MozNSS 
info here go ahead, I'll take a pass at the rest of the page later.
