Reading jj's link, and this, I wonder - how much of this on your own
stuff is 'we need to focus on this and just get it working', we'll
clean it up and integrate it later.
[Which is different than Android, etc. being refused entry into the
mainstream for other (e.g. proprietary, a la Sony - blu-ray/rootkit?,
Sun - virtualbox?, MS - doc?) reasons.]
Then you have the other (similar) side - CAcert having difficulty
being accepted as a root authority. (Some of which had to do with
