I looked at the history here, and the code was broken in a patch
installed on 2003-02-09:
That means it has been broken since v0.9.0 and nobody has missed it. I
think we should remove the code, it seems nobody needs the feature and
removing code decreases complexity.
People can use 'certtool --p7-info' to convert PKCS#7 blobs into lists
of PEM certificates. I tried it and it works fine on the OpenSSL file.
