BTW, the *idea* behind DER isn't inherently bad - but the way it ended up is another story. For a comparison, look at the encodings Knuth came up with in the TeX world. Both dvi and pk files are extremely compact binary representations - but correct encoders and decoders for them are plentiful.
DER is unintelligble and incomprehensible. There is, however, an open source complier for ASN.1
Does it not produce correct encoders and decoders for DER? (I have never used it)
