The format of these chunks is entirely protocol depended and thus is not
a good choice for a low level API. You think that CMS is what everyone
needs, I use OpenPGP more often and Joe Hacker thinks that BAR/9001 is a
better protocol and thus wants an API to fit its outer formatting rules.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Auschnahme regelt ein Bundeschgesetz.
