Regarding tests, a good test suite is a hard and long job.

Some security properties are just insanely hard to codify, and
some others need a lots of tests.

My time being very limited, it's hard to pull off, but i have plan to
add some tests for the certificate validation functions. Specially
since i want to harden some functions a bit more, and it will come handy
to verify i'm not breaking anything :-)
