--- Comment #1 from Andrew John Hughes <gnu.andrew at redhat.com> ---
We can make it an option to not apply this patch, thus keeping the curves, but
doing so would have to be an option for individual packagers. There are
potential legal issues with ECC and the three curves we retained are the only
ones I see being shipped as part of NSS on GNU/Linux distributions.
