Hi Aleksey,

Thanks for creating the cvs branch. I've checked out the new branch, and
discovered there are a few glitches causing the software won't compile out
of the box. These will be fixed, together with adjusting the code style
and layout. I'd already noticed that I wasn't using the identing/layout
used throughout the xmlsec lib, but in my enthousiasm I didn't take notice
of that (until now :)

The documentation found inside the souces is not complete at all, and
cannot be regarded as anything usefull at this time. I didn't spend any
time to that so far.

Thanks for the remarks, I'll update the code a bit following those.
Updates will follow (hopefully shortly :)
