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.
