Right, but thinking about he said he wanted some explanations from an
user point of view, I think we should advice him to don't try to make
both standards to interoperate... at least, not at "code" level...
I was accepted in GSWoT about 2 days ago, so I am still unsure how
does it operate to extend the WoT, but as far as I know, the aim of
GSWoT is to make a link (or bridge) between x.509 certificates and PGP
keys... Of course it may be -or may not be- a solution for his
problem... if the challenger doesn't trust CAcert, or Thawte, or GSWoT...
