If XCA has _any_ documentation at all, it is already better than TinyCA2 in

Mind you, I am assuming it does a decent job of following the x509 style
guide and gets certificate requests and CAs right.  If it doesn't, it is
actively harmful and should not be accepted at all.

Upstream looks just as dead as tinyca2, and that is a MAJOR point against
