 Yes that would be possible too - _if_ other implementations don't
 requires it. 
 We could add a new bool property (default to false), like
 ApplyCryptoApiLimitations, so it wouldn't break binary (assembly or
 existing data) compatibility.

+The import wizard GUI is limited to 32 chars, so it can only validate
+up to 31 chars as password (null). I was curious if you had tried the
+PFXImportCertStore API directly for the same limit ? (or not I'll try
+this later).
+I tried FF and I get an "unknown" import error for 31, 32 and 40
+length passwords (but a different one if I enter the wrong password).
+This is probably due to the fact that I'm importing a self-signed cert.
