I use a slightly improved version of it in web2ldap for the built-in 
X.509 certificate/CRL parser.

There are some issues with the CNRI license which prevents this module 
to be shipped with Debian Linux. See for a 
discussion about it.

Jeremy, the author of picses, already planned to negotiate a more 
liberal license with CNRI. A similar license issue was solved for Python 
itself before. But AFAIK no progress so far.

I have to look into module pysnmp.ber. Found some old conversation with 
Ilya in my archive about implementing a ASN.1 module...
(In the year 2000! time is running...!)

Ciao, Michael.
