OpenSSL::X509::Name#to_a Improvement (Patch Attached)
In ruby 1.8/1.9/trunk the OpenSSL::X509::Name#to_a method attempts to map OIDs to short names. If an OID has no associated shortname this causes it to return the string "UNDEF". It would be much more useful if it returned the OID in this situation. I've written a patch and test for the patch and attached it to this bug in unified diff format.

That's a good idea, Paul, thanks. It's also in line with RFC 4514 (the former 2253).
I'll have to check whether this causes problems when again parsing such a string
representation and probably fix that, too. But once that's done I'm going to apply
