Thinking about the use-of-system-libraries project, how nuts would we
be to drop back to 1.6.latest API and libraries for the duration (i.e.
until 1.8.0 is out)?  It seems unwise to be trying to use
system-provided libraries and *at the same time* trying to use the
very latest development version of botan, but if 1.6 is just not going
to hack it, perhaps that's where we are...
