    "CAcert.org is a community driven, Certificate Authority that issues 
    certificates to the public at large for free. "

    So my idea wasn't completely unfeasible :)  

The costs are involved with the bureacracy of becoming a *validated* CA
in the root certs.  There is nothing very technically difficult about it.

    Now the question is: should we accept it as a valid CA in GNU IceCat?

Do we know anything about them, or any of the people involved?  Do they
support free software?  Looking at their web site, I don't see many
answers ...

It could be a good move, but I wouldn't do it lightly.  For starters, we
should talk with them about it.  And rms.
