Wes, that is great.  I was looking more at writing the encoder in C
using the Apache Portable Runtime libraries anyway.  I haven't gone very
far with ASN.1 stuff yet, so I don't think we will be duplicating
efforts.  I still have to shore up some things on the client side, so I
will continue on that for now.  

I would be interested to see what you have for an initial design.  If
you want to work on the Java side, I will work on the C, let me know
what you think
