Deprecated, yes. But there'll be a long tail of legacy installations
(and distributions which aren't keeping up with the times) before we
can actually *remove* the support.

I'm not entirely sure about OS X either. It's perfectly reasonable to
assume p11-kit on any Linux distribution, but perhaps OSX still wants
to do its own thing? (And do we even have an engine or PKCS#11 module
that accesses the OSX keychain...?)
