CLM Beta 2 - Provision API

Certificate Lifecycle Manager (CLM) is the result of Microsoft's aquisition of another Canuck identity (oxymoron?) company. The product promises to make PKI easier, especially when it comes to smart cards. Desktops and laptops seem to be increasingly coming with smart card readers, so this could really hook up, eh?

Anyhow, CLM exposes a Provision API to automate parts of their system. I've been playing with it lately so will start to post some of the experiences here. The documeation is a bit rough but at least it exists. Actually I've already been told to RTFM, and yes, I deserved it.
