> Ah, right. Thanks. Will update when the job is all done. This time the overall goal is
to support BER encoding/decoding, indefinitive lenghth encoding, primitive but constructed
encoding/decoding and etc. The codes are almost done, but I'm still refining them along with
adding more tests. When the newly added CMS/X509 models/types (100+) in kerby-pkix module
are passed to tests then the library will be much proven strong. The rational is, with all
the complex types involved in Kerberos, CMS and X509 are well supported, the library should
be of good quality. 

There are some very slight difference between LDAP and Kerberos ASN.1
encoding. Typically, the support of BOLEAN can be different (BER vs DER
encoding) : "Kerberos explicitly specifies the use of the Distinguished
Encoding Rules (DER)", when LDAP uses BER.
