Oh, and of course all of this only gets you as far as having code  
that interoperates with itself, with no assurance that it bears any  
relationship to a DER encoding of any particular data structure.   
Once it's had a bit more of a shakedown, I expect Jim's code to be a  
lot better in that respect as well.  (I understand this is not his  
first ASN.1 compiler, by a long shot.)
