The problem for Python developers is that their Python program is not main(), and if python.exe does not have the OPENSSL_Applink interface, they cannot import M2Crypto, pyOpenSSL, or use ctypes to wrap OpenSSL, and write a PEM file without throwing an error. (That said, Daniel Clark says he is not experiencing problems with NCrypt. I have not verified.)
I'm probably missing something here. Python 2.6/3.x uses OpenSSL for
the hashlib and ssl modules. Doesn't this mean that this applink.c file
is part of the standard build now?
