Hi Vinnie,

Could you review the following webrev:


A couple of notes on the webrev:

- I have removed support for DNs which use <> as delimiters, ex "<CN=foo>". This
is an obscure syntax that I have never seen used in practice, and our parser
wouldn't accept this anyway - we had only partially implemented support for it -
which was related to the cause of this bug.

- I have also removed some dead code for strict RFC 1779 parsing. It wasn't
being used by any other code.
