There seems to be quite a few half-baked Open Source tools for ASN.1 
that seem to have stopped at supporting BER and a subset of the abstract 
syntax that they deemed useful, but never its entirety. Do the ASN.1 
folks consider this a problem? It certainly has caused me to try and use 
it, and give up in the past for I didn't have time to fix the tools. 
What is the generally admitted reason for this? Spec complexity? Lack of 
interest? Something else?
