Yes, that would work. But someone has to be willing to implement
*and* maintain it.

Yes I already thought about it while working with Jeremy Hylton's
asn1 module. Especially it would be fairly easy to implement a
completely re-entrant module in pure Python. And also more friendly
to Jython people.

But the BER stuff is a major PITA. Also for performance reasons the
BER implementation should be implemented in C. Or a module pair like
StringIO/cStringIO or pickle/cPickle.

Ciao, Michael.
