Wouldn't it be nice, though, for some applications to have the photos
built in (I'm thinking along the lines of a security-badge type
application -- not our primary focus, necessarily, but I'm wondering if /
hoping that the certificate model is flexible enough that several

subsets of our model... tickets would be the hardest part, I think...)
