I gave it a try earlier, since it was mentioned.  It created my
account, rejected my CSR, and I got a message saying that I somehow
failed to create a login certificate, that I'd no longer be able to
log in, and according to the FAQ the only way to continue would be to
create a whole new account on a different email address and to ask
them to manually merge the accounts.  That's broken in countless ways;
no CA should have such a brittle, half-baked account system.
