Hmmm... maybe it should be suggested that programs be capable of handling 
either binary or ASCII armored certificates. I can't imagine that small 
bit of extra code killing most apps.

Obviously, in performance-critical apps, or with a 7 bit connection, only 
one type need be supported, but general purpose apps should in fact 
support multiple purposes.
