[AG-TECH] expired certificate

I ran into this a short time ago as well. Not surprising but my
certificate expired at midnight the day before I had a very important
demonstration. Checked everything exhaustively the day before of course.
Mr. Murphy was on the ball!
I think it would be ***very*** useful to check the expiration date of a
certificate on proxy creation and remind the user that they should
require a new one if the expiration date is drawing near. This is going
to happen a lot in the near future (the first round of AG certs are
going to start expiring) and I can see this causing some real problems
in the near future!!! This is especially true for the non-expert user!
