I'm not exactly sure what "make certificate" is in this context.  =)
So, I may be confused.

But, if has the end result of creating a dummy certificate, that's
bad.  But, if it creates a CSR, then that *might* be okay.  However,
I'd rather see the whole key generation thing in the docs.  Just to 
make sure that people *read* the docs.  And, the OpenSSL docs have 
documentation for this anyway, IIRC.  -- justin
