How is this related to crypto-utils exactly?

Originally I opened this bug for all clients of of the PEM module. After some thought it turns out that crypto-utils usage is so simple that if doesn't really need to be modified at all.

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 19 development cycle.
Changing version to '19'.

(As we did not run this process for some time, it could affect also pre-Fedora 19 development
cycle bugs. We are very sorry. It will help us with cleanup during Fedora 19 End Of Life. Thank you.)

More information and reason for this action is here:
