Details

Sync uses padded AES 256 CBC. If we got nsIStreamCipher to provide this for us, we could ditch our own code that talks to NSS and instead use that (bug 636309).
There might be a better solution for Sync that I will describe in bug
636309 that would not require this PSM enhancement.
I am going to WONTFIX this since we're probably going to end up implementing a brand new crypto interface for JS (DOMCrypt). Sync should do as I described in bug 636309. If we end up deciding not to do that, then we can reopen this bug.
