Bravo. I think a public key from a cert in PEM/DER format would be great for
all crypto environments.

Ok, now we are getting somewhere :) The problem is that test (and all other
libraries) expect this file to be public key in DER format. Not a
certificate. We already have several key types: DER/PEM/PKCS12 and it sounds
like there needs to be one or two more:
public key with a cert in DER/PEM formats. I would need to think about that.
I am not sure that I want to package this changes in the initial
xmlsec-mscrypto release. Probably we can file a but and deal with this
later. I am glad that now we understand the problem :)
