Hi!  The `gnutls_certificate_get_peers' function returns an array of
gnutls_datum_t's, and the array is LIST_SIZE long.  LIST_SIZE is an
output variable.  Each gnutls_datum_t correspond to a X.509

It is probably a mistake that `gnutls_certificate_get_ours' does not
return a LIST_SIZE parameter too.  Do you need that functionality?
Maybe we can add a new API to get the entire list, and a LIST_SIZE
