Right. No copying and we don't create a Java Object per DER object
(or create and copy byte[] arrays). In theory I think this is about as
good as it get's I'm afraid. For doing any serious DER code I think a
compiler would be in order. Fortuneately I don't think we'll reach that
point unless we start to do custom LDAP / Kerberos stuff.

Anyone know if the Java 1.4 Kerberos client can negotiate a ticket with
the MS PAC in it? I guess I'll find out soon enough.
