The constructor takes the base64-encoded SPKAC, and the optional
challenge from the <keygen> form element. The challenge is
returned by the browser inside the SPKAC together with the
public key. Both are signed by the public key and this class
automagically verfies they're correct. If something goes wrong,
SPKAC_Decode_Error is raised.

Usually client certificates are used for authentication
purposes only. If the user loses the certificate we want as
little information as possible on the cert (as much as is
needed for authentication). So we set CN and emailAddress on
the certificate (and O and C are set from the issuer if not
explicitly set).
