Valid point, at the moment I haven't done very much (apart from fixing the
bug I mentioned, stylistic changes and minor changes like listing available
stores). I want to improve usability, e.g.
* Listing certificates from all the stores (except Untrusted) when called
with --list -c without specifying the store. Now it fails when no store
specified. Can be useful to get all trusted certs.
* When importing some well-known certificates (e.g. some Nuget-related),
certificate is claimed to be invalid. Needs investigation.
* Unit/integration tests
* Colouring output for readability?
I went to this list to collect some input from people who are using
certmgr, do they have any ideas of improvements.
