+Yes, there are still many missing features in X509Certificate2 (and

+corlib's X509Certificate class. The extra features it has were
+required for building our tools (e.g. authenticode support).
+Wordaround: Many of Mono tools supports PEM encoded certificates by
+using additional code (as they are built on top of fx 1.1). You could
+easily copy-paste that code into your own (until we complete 2.0
+support into Mono).
