To share my good news! I just got a port of Cryptography's ASN1 to Java
passing tests. Now to get PhaseHeaders encoding right to bring
bit-compatible encryption between Squeak and Java online.
Almost 50% more code in Java than squeak, just saying we have a concrete
example of the efficacy of squeak over Java. They should have left it as
the Oak Project and called it a day. Our day comes.
