As I already told here, PC2 is patented and anyway obsolete. We won't
include it. Furthermore importing a 40 bit RC2 encoded certificate
is really silly as this can be broken trivially and it must be assumed
that such a certificate has already ben compromised.

There is nothing like public domain in most European countries and
such the legel status of such an implementation might get us in trouble
