Btw, Bergi's tests have already been very useful for the http://gitub.com/bblfish/clerezza  branch. 

It found 

- 1 bug a week ago with the way clerezza (zz) was dealing with http headers for text/html 
- just now we found another bug relating to the way zz dealt with cert:hex, forgetting to take the absolute value of it and hence giving false negatives, in cases where an rsa:modulus does not start with 00, but with one of the numbers that can all too easily turn those into negative numbers if a simple transform is applied.

The second bug is the type of issue that can appear to be very random, allowing some people to connect and not others. So again this is why a good suite of tests is going to be extremely helpful to all webid implementers (and later to all webid users and admins).
