I would agree with MinRK, the serialization of keys being more basic, and
working on a JSON level would be very helpful in the long term over taking
the ini format of zcert. Granted, the zcert ini format can be easily
converted to a dict/hashmap which would make for a much easier underlying
structure to work with.
