Aren't engines already obsolete in the latest versions of OpenSSL, as well as being an implementation detail of one particular crypto library? They aren't really a concept we should be exposing in *our* user interface.

Better to make sign-file automatically recognise RFC7512 PKCS#11 URIs and handle them by automatically loading the PKCS#11 engine.
