The functions pem_to_der and decode_private_key have been deprecated,
they where part of our original API design for the
public_key-application but we then decided that approach would not
work out to make a small general and flexible API so we changed it.
Peter did a good job of explaining how to use the new API, it is
fairly straight forward if you know a little about the public_key
infrastructure. We will strive to make some examples for the user
