It has also been a while since I last had my mailbox flooded with
useless whining about what is or is not right about ASN.1.

Perhaps more might be accomplished if people would stop bitching
about the merits and weaknesses of ASN.1/BER/DER/whatever and
start actually tossing out useful statements that _actully have something
to do with SPKI_.  I would suggest those who favor ASN.1 that they
follow Carl's example and actually *produce examples* that other people
can look at and examine.  There have been two proposed formats
presented to the list and neither seems to have received much response
because everyone was too busy with the jihad-du-jour to talk about
them.  How sad.

Let's try to keep our eye on the ball people...
