I guess it would depend on how full featured we want the code. The 
library provides validation of various things that rolling our own code 
likely wouldn't. I mean, it is a library just like libssl or any other 
such thing.

I would imagine that rolling our own code would likely be simpler but 
the code itself would be dumber (not bad, just not as capable) and we 
would be duplicating the effort of an already established project. Do we 
really want to do that?
