Or some remain the suckers while others keep selling what the subscriber 
wants....until the catastrophe comes and the suckers will be at the 
other side. Whatever, we haven't issued certificates with less than 2K 
keys since 2008 I think and it hasn't hurt anybody, so let them keep 
those 1K keys and why not throw some MD5 hashes into the mix to make it 
a real good party...
