Hello Craig

Please can you clarify? I think that the 24 bytes are added at the
beginning, yet your use of the word "appended" implies to me that
the bytes are added at the end?

If the bytes are at the beginning, then "prepended" would be more
properly used than "appended".

Thank you for taking the time to go through the subtleties and
nuances of OpenSSL, and PEM, BER, DER, ASN.1 et al. I know it is
