So the protobuf-originated code is the new one.  Changing that is less heavy on the project, esp. regarding porting of patches.

I rather disagree.  The prefix “libhsm_” instead of “hsm_” focusses on the minor detail of it being a library, whereas the point of the “hsm_” prefix is to focus on the idea of having an API to the HSM.

These two reasons means that I vote for Matthijs’ proposal.
