 I'm sorry but it seems that a MS.NET behavior... X509Certificate class
 read the serial number in little endian form...
 It should be better if X509CertificateBuilder and x509Certificate
 class has the same behaviour

+Actually it's not that easy.
+S.S.C.X509Certificate (both 1.x and 2.0) and S.S.C.X509Certificate2
+(new class in 2.0) returns the serial number differently.
+FWIW (and IIRC) Mono.Security.X509.X509Certificate returns the serial
+number the same way as the X509CertificateBuilder (and the same way
+*most* software shows the serial number).
