Not really other than that 3.14 seems awfully young by libcurl standards as
the oldest version of a 3rd party to support, but I also think that if there's
nobody around that needs support for older stuff it feels unnecessary to bend
over backwards to support that.

If someone else comes along later and absolutely needs support for older NSS I
guess the work load is then rather shifted to that person/company.

So, no objections from me!
