 You're right, it is a DER thing, but it doesn't really matter if the
 unauthenticated attributes are not sorted correctly, since they're not
 signed. Having unsorted authenticated attributes is more serious
 because it breaks the signature for some implementations, like BC.

+Right, it's a bad example (unauthenticated attributes). My point is
+that, sadly, this problem is everywhere (not just the current case).
+So I think the real (but long term) solution is that I add this to the
+new ASN.1 encoder. In the short term I'll apply your patch (once I
+wrote some unit tests for it).
