I'm now the kind of person who can use OpenSSL to generate CA-signed ECDSA certificates with extensions by just... typing shit out off the top of my head without reference.

How did it come to this.

I wish the Rust dead_code lint had a like... snooze option.

Yes, this function I _just wrote_ isn't called anywhere yet.

Give me like... ten more compiles, then start complaining again if I haven't integrated it yet.
