I agree; actually, when unescaping stuff like '\5A'
I'm turning it into its byte representation, namely 'Z',
so the string becomes printable. I think this is the
one of the aims of parsing; in fact (at least this is
what I infer from RFC's) a dn
is equivalent to
so they MUST have the same structural representation,
right? Starting from this assumption, I can decide at
__parse__ time what formats in dn2str will be available.
