      Description

      When using SSL one often wants to use the x509 Common name et.al. This results in usernames of the 
      form
      
      /C=US/ST=Washington DC/L=Washington DC/O=Intel-5, PO12987/OU=NEMA Certificate Authority/
      CN=ca.asemantics.com/emailAddress=certmaster@asemantics.com.. etc
      
      which contain spaces and comma's (actually it is UTF8 in my case - but lets solve this for US ASCII first). 
      Ideally one would like to be able to include these in the [group] section or as general users. 
      
      However encapsulating these with a " or ' does not seem to keep the string protected making it rather 
      hard to use Client Certs.
