Hey Andres,

you don't seem to get my point.
Firstly, IMO certmgr is *far* better off as a standalone app (not part of
Mono bundle). That would allow to have much faster development.

Secondly, from what I know Mono has a lengthy code review process, and lack
of people who have the right to approve changes. Given that cergmgr is not
a priority I can imagine how long will it be until request is
accepted/rejected. I will try to merge my fixes back to certmgr, however,
and I'm more than sure it will be *months *before any action is taken. Hope
I'm wrong.

And lastly, I'm using Visual Studio style as opposed to Mono style.
